Fresh off a 44-6 win over King Kekaulike, the Baldwin Bears returned to the Star-Advertiser’s high school football poll at the No. 8 spot this week.

Baldwin jumped over Kamehameha to take Kapaa’s spot after the KIF power lost to Kauai. It is Kapaa’s first time since week four on the outside looking in. Baldwin spent two weeks clinging to the No. 10 spot before being knocked out by resurgent Campbell. It is Baldwin’s first time as high as No. 9 since Week 12 last year.

At the top of the charts, Kahuku got one of its first place votes back when a voter switched from Punahou back to the North shore. Kahuku had a bye last week and Punahou failed to impress at least one person with its 38-14 win over Iolani.

The rest of the top 10 remained the same except for one curious switch. Mililani jumped over Farrington for the No. 6 spot despite being idle and the Governors throttling undermanned Kaiser 43-0.

Mililani beat Farrington 31-28 early in the season but has been ranked behind the Governors for the previous three weeks.

Kamehameha clung to the last spot for the second straight week with an inspired defensive performance against Saint Louis but still remains in danger of falling out of the poll for the first time.

1. Kahuku (14), 149, 1
2. Punahou (1), 135. 2
3. Saint Louis, 120, 3
4. Kapolei, 105, 4
5. Waianae, 88, 5
6. Mililani, 67, 7
7. Farrington, 57, 6
8. Campbell, 42, 8
9. Baldwin, 25, NR
10. Kamehameha, 22, 10
ARV: Hilo 5, Konawaena 4, Kapaa 3, Iolani 3.

    Doesn’t matter.

    Win or go home.

    I think Waianae and Farrington both win this weekend. Seeding won’t matter.
