The Vikings are two spots ahead of the Warriors, who dropped to No. 8 following the four-set loss. KS-Hawaii will open its Division I state tournament this afternoon hosting Waianae at 4 p.m.

A potential match between two of the top three teams in the state looms in Thursday’s quarterfinals. A Raiders victory over the Hurricanes would set up a match with MIL champion and No. 3 seed King Kekaulike, which is also ranked No. 3 in the state.
Kahuku, which was swept by Mililani in the OIA D-I title game, remains at No. 7. The Red Raiders open their state tournament tonight hosting Farrington.
Unranked Kamehameha-Maui hosts No. 10 Moanalua tonight with the winner getting the No. 1 team in the state, Kamehameha, in Thursday’s quarterfinals.
Na Menehune is tied for the No. 10 ranking with Damien, which finished second in the ILH after losing twice to Mid-Pacific last week.
