Campbell kept its spot at No. 1 in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser softball Top 10, but there was plenty of movement at other ranks.

‘Iolani was the biggest positive climber, up five spots to No. 3 after a 1-1 week in which the Raiders lost to No. 6 Punahou 9-3 and topped then-No. 7 Kamehameha 17-11.

Two teams took big drops. Leilehua descended five places to No. 10, and St. Francis, which started the season at No. 4, tumbled out of the Top 10 completely.

The Mules lost to then-unraked Waianae 6-4 on Tuesday, and the Saints were beaten by then-No. 9 Mid-Pacific 15-14 on Saturday.

The Owls moved up two spots to No. 7, and the Seariders entered the poll for the first time this season at No. 8 after a slim 3-2 loss to the top-ranked Sabers on Saturday.

The poll’s other movement included Maryknoll going up one spot to No. 2, Mililani dropping three slots to No. 5 and Kamehameha falling two places to No. 9.

No. 4. Roosevelt and No. 6 Punahou stayed put.

Seven teams not in the top 10 received at least one vote this week — Pearl City (10), Lahainaluna (nine), St. Francis (nine), Moanalua (six), Kapolei (three), Waiakea (two) and Baldwin (one).
