Today the Honolulu Star-Advertiser released its girls basketball All-State Fab 15 team, marking the 30th consecutive year a newspaper had put out on All-State team in girls basketball.
Next Sunday, the Star-Advertiser will release its boys basketball All-State Fab 15 selections, marking the 40th consecutive year a newspaper has put out an All-State team in boys basketball dating back to the Honolulu Advertiser’s 1978 squad.

We will release them 10 at a time, beginning with 1978 to 1987.
The Honolulu Star-Bulletin put out its first All-State team in 1986.
