Kamehameha loses ‘unanimous’ No. 1 tag

Kamehameha outside hitter Keonilei Akana went for a dig against Maryknoll earlier this season. The Warriors (10-2) remained No. 1 in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Top 10 this week. Jamm Aquino / Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

The Kamehameha Warriors suffered their second loss of the season last week and are no longer a unanimous No. 1 in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Girls Volleyball Top 10 released Monday.

The Warriors (10-2), who dropped a four-set match to then-No. 2 Punahou, received nine out of 10 first-place votes and kept their No. 1 ranking. The Buffanblu (5-7) got the other first-place vote, but tumbled to No. 3 due to a three-set loss to ‘Iolani (5-7).

The Raiders and Buffanblu play Tuesday for a spot in the Division I state tournament. Kamehameha previously qualified for states.

There were three other big changes in the rankings:

>> Maryknoll (4-8), a five-set winner over ‘Iolani and a three-set loser to Kamehameha last week, moved up one spot to No. 4, and Moanalua (12-0) fell one spot to No. 5

>> Hilo (15-1) overtook the No. 8 slot from Kamehameha-Maui (12-0), which dropped to No. 9.

>> Seabury Hall (12-0) replaced Hawaii Baptist at No. 10. The Eagles (9-4) lost to Damien and Sacred Hearts last week and were bounced out of the Top 10.

This week’s Top 10 follows.
