The women of Troy are wreaking havoc on their way to the top.

Mililani (15-4 overall) collected seven of 10 first-place votes to bump ‘Iolani out of the No. 1 ranking in the Star-Advertiser Softball Top 10 on Monday. The Lady Trojans are on a rampage with nine wins in a row since losing their OIA West opener to Kapolei. They edged Campbell, 3-1, and routed Leilehua, 11-1, last week.

Maryknoll (16-3) moved up a notch to No. 2 after routing Kamehameha, 15-5, and ‘Iolani, 9-0, in ILH double-elimination tourney play last week. The Spartans garnered two first-place votes.


‘Iolani supplanted Maryknoll at No. 1 on Mar. 21 and was at the peak for five weeks in a row. The Raiders defeated Punahou, 8-5, before losing to Maryknoll. They received one first-place vote.
