    Hawaii football is so watered down, not enough schools to have 3 divisions. It’s not the mainland

    How do Waipahu get da home field above da Iolani? Iolani 8-2 and da Waipahu is 5-2. Iolani beat Waipahu 55-14 in dis season? Sum fing is roong boss.

    @Da Rock Wall

    It’s because ILH won’t crown a champion for D-I and D-II because there are only two teams in those divisions.

    ok but why da best team is not on top ? I forgot Waipahus record was 5-4 becuz they loss to Damien and Iolani but OIA never count that losses.

    @Da Rcok Wall

    I get your sentiment but seeding a non-league champion above a league champion is a bad precedent. If ILH decided to name Iolani league champion I’m sure they’ll be seeded considering the record.

    Personally, I think Hilo-Iolani-Waipahu are at a similar level, and any of them could win the whole thing. Waipahu lost to Leilehua earlier in the year but turned the tables in the playoffs. The three teams are different teams from September.

    Thank you Wainakea.
