For a third week in a row, Baldwin occupies the No. 1 ranking in the Star-Advertiser Baseball Top 10.
Again, however, Baldwin (11-1, 3-0 MIL) saw its hold on first-place votes has diminished slightly. The defending state champions collected eight first-place votes, while ILH front-runner ‘Iolani (16-3, 6-0) received the other two.
Waiakea (9-1, 4-0 BIIF) leaped a notch over Punahou (13-1-1, 5-0 ILH) to No. 3. Punahou and ‘Iolani will play on Thursday in a key ILH showdown at the Raiders’ home field.
Defending OIA champion Mililani (8-4, 4-0 OIA West) made the biggest jump, going from No. 8 to No. 5. Saint Louis (9-4, 4-2 ILH), Campbell (8-1-1, 2-1 OIA West), Kamehameha (8-5, 4-2 ILH), Kamehameha-Hawaii (7-0 BIIF) and Kailua (4-5-2, 2-1 OIA East) round out the Top 10.
KS-Hawaii is making its debut in the Top 10, while Kailua returns after dropping out last week.
Mid-Pacific, Kaiser and Roosevelt dropped out of the Top 10.
KS-Maui (four), St. Francis (three), Mid-Pacific (two) and Kaiser (one) received at least one vote.
