Undefeated Division I teams Moanalua and Damien both jumped a spot into new territory in this week’s Honolulu Star-Advertiser Football Top 10.
Na Menehune (4-0) is ranked No. 6 for the first time in school history while the Monarchs (5-0) check in at No. 7 for the first time ever.
Moanalua quarterback RJ Javar threw three touchdown passes to lead Na Menehune to a 21-6 victory over Sierra Vista (Nev.) on Friday in Las Vegas. It was the first game on the mainland ever played by Na Menehune.
Moanalua is now 12-1 since the start of the 2018 season.
Damien rolled up 213 rushing yards in a 41-13 win over Castle on Friday to match the best start to the season in school history at 5-0.
Quarterback Jake Holtz has been careful with the ball, throwing just two picks with 11 touchdowns in five games.
Hilo also jumps a spot to No. 8 this week after scoring 104 points — including 83 in the first half — against Waiakea.
Kamehameha tumbled three spots to No. 9 after losing 42-7 to No. 1 Saint Louis.
The Crusaders moved up a spot nationally to No. 7 in the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 and No. 8 in the USA Today Super 25.
The rest of the Top 10 remains the same with Lahainaluna (nine votes) the only team outside of the top 10 to receive votes.
