    Bold prediction, but don’t discount Iolani because of their win-loss record. I only had the pleasure of watching them once during the regular season and they were “tinkering” with their lineup, with Ka’aha’aina-Torres setting. Now that she’s back outside, this team is very strong. I don’t know if any team in the state has figured out how to stop Iolani’s OHs, and that is what will be needed to beat them. If not, it will be a race to which team will get to 25 first. With their ability to side out almost at will with Oglivie and Ka’aha’aina-Torres, that is basically a coin flip.

    Between Kamehameha and Iolani, it comes down to the depth of KS vs the dominance of Iolani’s OHs.
