The OIA girls volleyball regular season wrapped up Thursday night and the playoffs will begin Wednesday at two sites in Division I and at Radford for the Division II opening round.

Defending champion Mililani, which beat Moanalua in five sets to win the OIA crown in 2019, is the No. 2 seed out of the OIA West and will play the Farrington/Pearl City winner a week from Monday at Moanalua. A win would set up a likely rematch against Na Menehune (10-0), who earned the top seed out of the OIA East.

Moanalua, which has won 22 consecutive matches in the regular season dating back to 2018, will host the winner between Campbell and Kaiser a week from Monday. The semifinals will take place that Tuesday and the final will be two days later on the Thursday after Thanksgiving.

Kapolei (10-0), which swept Mililani last month to end the Trojans’ 33-match winning streak in the regular season, is the No. 1 seed out of the West and will host the Kalani/Nanakuli winner a week from Monday. East No. 2 Kahuku will host the Waianae/McKinley winner in the final quarterfinal match.

Kalaheo (5-5) and Leilehua (7-3) earned the top seeds in the Division II tournament.

Kahuku enters the OIA tournament with the longest steak of consecutive state-tournament appearances out of the OIA, qualifying every season since 2000. Mililani is one back of the Red Raiders having made 18 state appearances in a row since 2001.
