Flames vs. Maui Lani
Another close back-and-forth game followed between the Flames and Maui Lani. A three-pointer by Alek Paet gave Maui Lani a 45-44 lead with less than 20 seconds left in the game. Then,_ with less than 10 seconds left on the clock, Ethan Manois-Bates hit a short jumper--part of his league season-high 35 points--to give the Flames back the lead 46-45. A last second desperation shot by Maui Lani came up short.
Girls softball, youth sand volleyball to begin soon
Registration for our Girl's Softball will begin in mid July. This year, we are going back to a slo-pitch format.
We are also getting closer to getting a youth sand volleyball program started. More details are coming soon.
We are always looking for volunteers to help officiate games. Just bring your shoes, and a willingness to help out--we'll supply the whistles. For information on any of our programs, call the South Maui Parks office at 879-4533, or check out our South Maui Parks Facebook page.
