Fourteen years ago, Kailua and Kamehameha pulled off the rare feat of playing in both the state softball and state baseball finals in the same season. Two years ago, Campbell became the first team since Kamehameha in 1987 to win both the state softball and state baseball championships in the same year.

Voters seem to think either one, or both, of those things could happen again this year with the league playoffs beginning over the next two weeks.

The Sabers and Warriors hold the top two spots in both the Honolulu Star-Advertiser baseball and softball top 10 rankings released Monday. The Campbell softball team has held the top spot in all but one week of this season while Kamehameha sits at the top of the baseball rankings for the second straight week heading into Tuesday’s ILH playoff game against No. 4 Saint Louis.


A record 20 different softball teams received at least one vote from a panel of 10 voters island-wide this week. The schools that didn’t make the top 10 (in order): Maui 11, Punahou 5, Baldwin 5, St. Francis 4, Hilo 4, Kailua 3, Aiea 3, Kalani 2, Konawaena 1, Kapolei 1

Other teams to receive baseball votes: ‘Iolani 4, KS-Maui 2, Maui 2 and Moanalua 2.
