The ILH is always tough in girls volleyball, but it might have become a whole lot tougher.

No. 3 Iolani, which has been looking up at Punahou and Kamehameha for the past seven years, showed what is possible this year with a championship in Kamehameha’s Hawaii Volleyball Invitational on Saturday.

The Raiders, who have not made it to states since 2007, opened the championship round of the tournament with a 25-12, 25-16 sweep of Kalaheo then dropped host Kamehameha 19-25, 25-21, 25-16 and Moanalua 25-16, 25-23, 25-22 in the title match.


Moanalua swept Hawaii Baptist in the other semifinal after the Eagles got by Kahuku in three sets to join the Final Four.

Castle won the Silver division.
