    Pearl City and Kalani are the only teams that didn’t qualify for the playoffs and gotta move down to D2. I bet nobody saw that coming. I’m sad.

    PC and Falcons have to ask teams in D2 if they want to come up before they can go down, I believe..,

    Its not up to PC and Kalani, it’s the OIA rules. Last place D1 team goes down, first place D2 team moves up. The only way for a last place D1 team to stay up the next year is if a D2 team declines to move up.

    I already know that Waipahu will accept D1 and that means PC goes down to D2 for the West. Kalani still has a chance because Kaimuki is undecided in the East. They waiting to see if they make it to D2 states.

    Supposed to be 2 yr thing but after every year a D1 team can go down if a D2 team wants to go up. Semantics

    How many players from power teams have players that have transferred from weaker teams and no longer have to sit out a year? This rule is hurting high school sports.
