The Division I bracket for the state tournament didn’t change despite the ouster of No. 1-ranked Kahuku.
The OIA champion, Mililani, is seeded first and will have a first-round bye. Saint Louis is the second seed behind Mililani, an oddity considering the Crusaders’ season-long lock at No. 2 in the Top 10 behind Kahuku.
Saint Louis will also have a bye before facing Baldwin, Leilehua or Waianae.
Oddly enough, tonight’s Leilehua-Waianae winner will have a tougher road than the loser. By finishing second, either team will travel to play Baldwin in a quarterfinal. The winner will face Saint Louis.
The Leilehua-Waianae loser, meanwhile, will host the Big Island Interscholastic Federation champion (either Kealakehe or Keaau), then play Mililani. Waianae gave Mililani its only loss during the regular season.
