A few days after two of their all-star teams captured local  tournament titles, Central East Maui collected yet another crown by clinching the District 3 crown in the Senior Division with an 11-0 romp past Upcountry.

That means Central East has qualified teams for three of Little League baseball’s state tournaments to be held July 15-19.

The Majors’ event for 11- and 12-year-olds will be played on the Valley Isle.  The Juniors’ event for 13- and 14-year-olds will be played at Kailua High School on Oahu.  The Seniors’ event for 14- and 16-year-olds also will be held on Oahu.

From the diamond to the links:  The reason given by the PGA for forcing out Mark Rolfing as the lead organizer of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions is that the Kapalua event needs a 24/7 director.  Rolfing’s principal gig is as a golf analyst on a variety of television networks often takes him off-island for assignments.
