There hasn’t been much of an opportunity for Kahuku to climb any higher in the USA Today Super 25 rankings.
A ranked team hasn’t loss to a unranked team since September, meaning Kahuku once again holds steady at No. 22 in the latest rankings released Monday.
The Red Raiders defeated Farrington 44-8 to win their second consecutive OIA championship last Friday. After the game, head coach Vavae Tata accepted the trophy but said this isn’t the one he is looking for.
Kahuku will open defense of its state title in two weeks in the semifinals of the Open Division against either Kapolei or Punahou.
In 10 games against Hawaii opponents, the Red Raiders have outscored the opposition 497-36 with an average margin of victory of 46.1 points.
MaxPreps, which has been slower in recognizing Kahuku this season, had the Red Raiders as one of its five bubble teams in its CBS Max Preps XCellent 25 rankings released on Monday.
