Saint Louis (16-2) remains the No. 1 squad after collecting nine of 11 first-place ballots. The Crusaders, sparked by Aiva Arquette and Hayden Bayudan, finished first in the ILH regular-season standings. Saint Louis and runner-up ‘Iolani have secured state-tournament berths.


Maryknoll (9-5), Kailua and Punahou (11-6) round out the top five. Mililani (12-1) remained at No. 6, followed by Kahuku (10-1), Kamehameha (8-7), Baldwin (8-3) and newcomer Kohala (6-0), the defending 2019-20 Division II state champion.
