Winning the regular season in your league was rewarded by voters in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Girls Volleyball Top 10 this week.
Damien (11-0) and Kahuku (10-1) jumped two spots after they both picked up key wins to finish at the top of their respective divisions heading into league playoffs.
The Monarchs jump to No. 7 after sweeping then-No. 6 Le Jardin 25-15, 29-27 last Tuesday. Kahuku, which opens the OIA playoffs as the No. 1 seed out of the East in Division I on Thursday, swept Kalani and Kaiser to finish 10-1 in the regular season and move up to No. 8.
Moanalua (9-2) had a chance to win the division but lost in three sets to Roosevelt on Monday to drop two spots to No. 10.
Le Jardin (10-1) dropped three spots to No. 9 after the loss to the Monarchs.
Kamehameha (9-0) again received all 10 first-place votes and opens the ILH second-round tournament at home on Tuesday against Maryknoll. No. 2 ‘Iolani (6-3), which has only lost to Kamehameha in Hawaii this season, will play at No. 5 Punahou on Tuesday.
King Kekaulike (11-1), which hasn’t dropped a set in MIL play, is No. 3 again, followed by No. 4 Mililani, which opens its OIA playoffs at home on Thursday.
The Monarchs’ No. 6 ranking is their highest ever in the history of the Star-Advertiser rankings.
KS-Hawaii (13-0) also moved up a spot to No. 6.
Kapolei (eight) and Hilo (two) also received votes.
