Defending OIA champion Kahuku will take a 26-game winning streak against OIA teams (regular season and playoffs only) into the league playoffs that begin Thursday.

The Red Raiders (10-0) are the top seed out of the East and Kapolei (10-0) leads the way in the West.

Kalaheo (7-3) earned the No. 2 seed from the East and a first-round bye while Leilehua, by virtue of a 52-37 win over Campbell in the regular season finale on Saturday, nabbed the other first-round bye.

The Division I games that open the playoffs Thursday are Radford vs. McKinley at Roosevelt, Moanalua at Mililani, Kaiser at Campbell and Aiea at Kailua.

Kalani (8-2) in the East and Pearl City (6-4) out of the West are the top seeds in the Division II playoffs.
