The West No. 1 seed Campbell Sabers enter the OIA tournament as the three-time defending state champions. However, the Sabers haven’t won an OIA title since 2013.

Mililani, which has won three of the last four OIA Division I softball titles, is the defending champion and opens the tournament Wednesday in a must-win game at Kailua to keep its season alive.

Defending OIA Division II champion Aiea is the No. 3 seed this year behind Kalani and Waialua.

McKinley will host the Division I semifinals on Friday and the championship doubleheader on Saturday.

The full tournament schedule is below:
