Kailua leagues claimed three state titles in the 1970s, and Kaneohe leagues added two more. Frequent qualifiers -- but one-time winners in the 1970s -- from Wahiawa American and Pearl City made back-to-back World Series appearances in 1971 and 1972. Both leagues reached the World Series semifinals before falling to Taiwanese leagues that went on to win championship games.
The East Hawaii Kiwanis became the first Big Island-based Hawaiian champions since Hilo American in 1961.
