The top four teams at the Hawaii Volleyball Invitational has gone to form.

No. 2 Kamehameha, No. 3 Iolani, No. 4 Moanalua and No. 6 Kahuku all made it through the gauntlet in the second day of the tournament, but will get another match tomorrow.

Kamehameha was not without its problems, sweeping Kamehameha-Hawaii but splitting with Kalaheo before sweeping Moanalua.

Kahuku might have been the most impressive on the second day, sweeping Iolani II, Mililani and No. 3 Iolani in succession. The Red Raiders will play either Kamehameha-Hawaii or Hawaii Baptist on Saturday at 9 a.m. before the tournament moves into its championship round.

Hawaii Baptist was the only other unbeaten team on the second day.

The title match is scheduled for 1 p.m. after the noon semifinals.
