Chances of a fourth consecutive different champion to come out of the OIA Red girls volleyball playoffs seem highly unlikely with Moanalua, Mililani and Kahuku all very capable of prevailing in the tournament that starts tonight with four first-round games.

A bracket and updated results can be found on our OIA girls volleyball page.

Roosevelt in 2006 is the last team other than the Big Three to prevail. Kahuku, Moanalua and Mililani have taken turns as OIA champions since the Red Raiders won three in a row from 2008-10.


Kahuku can also extended an impressive streak of 14 consecutive state tournament reached. The Red Raiders have gone to states every year since 2000, which is better than both Punahou and Kamehameha in the ILH. Kamehameha has reached every state tournament since 2001 while the Buffanblu were left out of the 2005 tournament.


Moanalua is right behind the Red Raiders with 13 consecutive appearances while Mililani was last left out of the tourney in 2006.

The Division II playoffs begin Thursday with No. 1 seeds Kailua and Pearl City not playing until next Tuesday.
