Kahuku’s convincing 39-14 victory over Saint Louis for the state Division I championship helped the Red Raiders move up 90 spots to No. 24 in the MaxPreps national computer rankings released Sunday.

The Red Raiders capped their 13-0 season on Friday at Aloha Stadium. They could go up or down from there, depending on how other top teams across the country fare as their seasons wind down.

The Crusaders fell 77 spots to No. 113.

    Thank you…exact point i was trying to make. There is nothing wrong or illegal about doing the Haka… but it’s the way it was done that was disrespectful, and that’s why they were penalized. Similarly, there’s nothing wrong with a calendar with beautiful women in bikinis… but if its placed on the wall at work to share the view with others… that’s where it becomes disrespectful and one can get penalized too. Nothing wrong with either… just the way it gets presented can be wrong and considered disrespectful. That’s all I’m saying. Just viewing it from the other side.
