The musical chairs of ILH girls volleyball hasn’t come close to ending.

Kamehameha is the latest of the big three to rise to No. 1. The Warriors, who outlasted then-No. 1 Punahou in five sets last Tuesday, are the new team atop the Star-Advertiser Girls Volleyball Top 10.

Kamehameha (5-3) collected six out of 10 first-place votes from the panel of coaches and media. The return of national team outside hitter Devin Kahahawai recently is a jolt to the league, but the Warriors have been without senior Maui Robins (ankle) for three weeks.

Punahou (6-2) dropped to No. 2 and ‘Iolani (5-2) remained at No. 3 despite rallying past Kamehameha on Thursday in five sets.

No. 4 Moanalua (3-0) is unbeaten in OIA East play and collected one first-place ballot.

Le Jardin (6-2), with wins over Hawaii Baptist and Maryknoll, returned to the Top 10 at the 10 spot.
