On Friday, June 3, 2011, the Honolulu City Council honored the Pearl City Chargers varsity baseball team and coaches for capturing the 2011 Hawaii State Baseball Division I Championship.

Honolulu City Councilman, Breene Harimoto presented the champions from Pearl City High School with a Certificate of Recognition in a ceremony held at Honolulu Hale.

“It’s an honor that Council Member Harimoto invited us today and it should be really good for the kids,” said Pearl City Chargers Head Coach, Mitch Yamato. “It’s well deserved for them, they worked really hard. This day is special for everybody. Too bad the other coaches couldn’t make it as well.”

The Chargers defeated the Moanalua Menehune 2-1 for the state championship on Monday, May 9, 2011 at Les Murakami Stadium on the campus of the University of Hawaii. This is Pearl City High School's first state championship title for the Chargers varsity baseball program.
