Baldwin hires new football coach
A.J. Roloos has been named Baldwin's head football coach, the Bears' fifth since 1999.
The school agreed with the recommendation of a selection committee. Both Roloos and co-finalist Rodney Figueroa were assistant coaches last season.
Roloos steps in for Jimmy Morimoto, who stepped down when he and his family decided to move to the mainland. Baldwin was 21-2-1 under Morimoto, who succeeded Chad Kauhaahaa, now an assistant coach at Weber State.
Roloos had been an assistant for seven years.

St. Anthony sweeps to title
St. Anthony swept Kamehameha-Maui last week in a best-of-three series to capture their first Maui Interscholastic League baseball championship since 1978. St. Anthony will be playing in the state tournament for the first time since 1991.
Ace Michael Jahns has led the Trojans, but sophomore Buta Wilhelm-Ioane and freshman Arrone Santos combined for a four-hitter in the title-clinching win over the Warriors.
The Trojans, loaded with underclassmen, will not play again until the HHSAA/Wally Yonamine Foundation Baseball State Championships on May 9-12 at Les Murakami Stadium and Central Oahu Regional Park.
