Defending champion Santa Margarita is in position to repeat at the Ann Kang Invitational.

The California school finished the second day of the tournament 6-0 without losing a set, the only school to do so. Mira Costa also went 6-0, but dropped two sets.

Southlake Carroll is third with a 5-1 record entering today’s final day.


Hawaii schools slipped a bit at the tournament, with Iolani falling to both Edison and Kahuku in three sets to drop to 4-2. The host Raiders open the final day against Southlake Carroll at 11 a.m.

The final is scheduled for 4 p.m.

Punahou matched Iolani with a 4-2 record, losing in three to Mira Costa before sweeping Newport Harbor and Le Jardin. The Buffanblu face Boswell on Saturday.


Kahuku is also 4-2, losing to Southlake Carroll on Friday. The Red Raiders open with Sage Hill on Saturday.

Other Hawaii schools didn’t fare so well. Moanalua went 1-5 with its only win coming against Iolani I-AA, and Hawaii Baptist goes into the final day 0-6 with only two sets to its name. The Eagles open with Kingwood, which went 1-5, on Saturday.


Mainland schools haven’t repeated at the tournament since Mira Costa in 2008 and Redondo Union in 2009. Santa Margarita won the tournament last year.

Here are the results from the second day: AKIVT-Schedule
