Hilo's Elijah Apo ran the ball against Campbell in Ewa Beach earlier this year. The Division I state champion Vikings are back in this year's tournament after beating Kealakehe 25-11 Friday night. Jordan Fong / Special to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Hilo (8-1), by virtue of its 25-11 playoff victory over Kealakehe at Wong Stadium on Friday, wrapped up the BIIF D-I championship and earned a berth as the defending champion in the Division I state tournament.

HHSAA D-I brackets are expected to be released soon. All state D-I berths are set except the MIL spot, which will be determined on Friday, Nov. 2, in a game between MIL D-I first-round winner Maui (4-5) and second-round champ Baldwin (3-6). The other D-I teams at states are ‘Iolani (8-2) from the ILH and Waipahu (8-4) from the OIA.

Kapaa won the KIF championship on Saturday at Hanapepe Stadium with a 53-21 victory over Waimea at Hanapepe Stadijum.


The Warriors (6-2) finished the KIF season with a 5-1 record, one game better than runner-up Kauai, and will play in the Division II state tournament beginning Nov. 10. Earlier today, the HHSAA released its brackets and Kapaa is the No. 2 seed with a first-round bye.

Kamehameha-Hawaii (6-2) traveled to Konawaena and upended the Wildcats 27-22 in the BIIF D-II title game Saturday. The Warriors play a first-round game in the D-II state tournament at home against OIA runner-up Kaimuki on Nov. 10. MIL D-II champion and sixth-ranked Lahainaluna (9-0), OIA champion Roosevelt (10-2), and Pac-Five (4-4) are the other teams in the state D-II bracket.


In the BIIF 8-man championship game, Ka’u (6-0) won its third straight crown and fourth in the last five years with a 40-28 victory over Pahoa Saturday at Pahala Ball Field.

    KS-Hawaii forfeited a game against Hilo to have two weeks to prepare for Konawaena. Their championship should have a * next to it. Play everyone scheduled like you supposed to, not forfeit to a good team to keep players from getting hurt.

    Good point. If that is allowed teams can forfeit to hard teams and play teams they feel they can beat. Need to fix that.
