The top six teams remain the same in this week’s Honolulu Star-Advertiser Football Top 10, but two new faces made the jump into the rankings.
No. 1 seed Moanalua and No. 2 seed Leilehua both lost in the OIA Division I playoffs over the weekend, setting the stage for Hilo at No. 9 and Waipahu at No. 10 to re-enter the rankings.
The Vikings began the year at No. 10 but fell out of the rankings after getting blown out by Campbell in their season opener. Seven wins later, and Hilo is back in the Top 10 ahead of its BIIF championship game against Kealakehe on Friday.
The Marauders were ranked No. 9 after the first week of the season when they opened with a win over Waianae, but fell out the following week after a big loss to ‘Iolani.
Waipahu knocked off Leilehua 29-6 at Hugh Yoshida Stadium to get into the OIA D-I title game Friday night at Aloha Stadium against Castle, which knocked Na Menehune out of the rankings and ended their season on Saturday night with a 28-14 victory.
‘Iolani (8-2) moved up three spots to No. 7, ahead of No. 8 Kamehameha, which ended its season in a 35-0 shutout loss against Punahou to finish 4-6.
The Raiders haven’t been ranked as high as seventh since Week 2 of 2015.
