The OIA boys volleyball playoffs are set after the conclusion of the regular season on Tuesday night.

The top two byes in each league were already clinched last week with Moanalua (11-0) and Kahuku (10-1) earning the top seeds in the East and Mililani (10-0) and Waipahu (9-1) claiming the first-round byes from the West.

McKinley and Kalani both lost on Tuesday and finished tied for third place at 7-4, but the Tigers earned the head-to-head nod with a sweep of the Falcons earlier in the season. Kalaheo and Kaiser both lost as well on Tuesday to finish tied for fifth at 6-5. Both had already clinched a playoff berth and the Cougars hold the tiebreaker with a three-set win over the Mustangs over a month ago.


In the West, Waianae (8-2), Kapolei (7-3), Campbell (5-5) and Pearl City (4-6) round out seeds three through six. Roosevelt (5-6) and Leilehua (3-7) are the odd teams out.

In Division II, Castle knocked off McKinley in three sets to finish with a winning record at 6-5 in the OIA Blue. The Knights are the top seed out of the East followed by Kaimuki (4-7) and Farrington (3-8).

Aiea (3-7), Nanakuli (3-7) and Radford (2-8) all finished within a game of each other in the West and Na Alii won the tiebreaker over the Golden Hawks with a three-set win between the two schools last week.


Waialua (1-9), Kailua (1-10) and Anuenue (0-11) are left out of the playoffs.
