Kahuku’s impressive 28-0 victory over Waianae last Friday did not go unnoticed on the mainland.
After holding the previously undefeated Seariders to 32 total yards to record their 16th consecutive victory, the Red Raiders jumped seven spots to No. 18 in the latest USA Today Super 25 rankings released Monday.
Bishop Gorman took over the No. 1 spot in the rankings after thrashing then-No. 5 Cedar Hill (Tex.) 44-14 on Saturday. The Gaels will host Kahuku in Las Vegas on Sept. 17.
The Red Raiders did not crack the CBS MaxPreps Xcellent Top 25 released Monday but were listed as one of five bubble teams. Bishop Gorman was also ranked No. 1 in that poll.
Kahuku’s next two games are at home versus Campbell and at Radford before making the trip to the mainland to face the Gaels.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser football and volleyball rankings are due out later today.
