ILH champion Kamehameha is the top seed in the Queen’s Medical Center/HHSAA Girls Soccer State Championships in Division I.

The Warriors won their first league title since 2012 with a 2-0 win over Punahou on Monday and are looking for their first state crown since 2014. Kamehameha has won eight state championships overall in girls soccer and seven under the 12-team format that has existed since 1994.

Mililani, which won its third straight OIA title with a 2-0 win over Kaiser on Saturday, is the No. 2 seed. The Trojans are looking for their first state crown since winning it all in 2015.

BIIF champion Hilo is the third seed and MIL winner King Kekaulike is the No. 4. seed.


Pearl City, which is the only other OIA team to win a state title since 2002 (won it in 2016), plays Konawaena in an opening round match Monday on the Big Island.

Kaiser will host Aiea and Kamehameha-Maui will host Waipahu in other first-round games set for Monday.


The winner of Wednesday’s ILH match between Punahou and defending state champion ‘Iolani will get the league’s second state berth and host Moanalua in a first-round match on Monday.

    Let me see if I got this right … some of the D-II schools played their season games on nice stadium fields and the games was usually at night, or at least aruond 4:30 start when it was during the week. That makes sense for the students, coaches, parents and pretty much everybody involved.

    BUT NOW, these teams are “rewarded” at states with having to play at 3:00 weekday afternoons on the crappy kids’ fields at Waipio. WTF?!? Thank you for nothing HHSAA!

    Can somebody at the newspaper please explain?
