With its second win over a ranked opponent in three games, Moanalua made the biggest jump in this week’s Honolulu Star-Advertiser Football Top 10.
Na Menehune, who squeezed by previous-No. 6 Leilehua on Friday night, matches their highest ranking in a statewide football poll checking in at No. 7.
Moanalua was ranked No. 7 for one week last year before losing to Castle in the OIA Division I playoffs.
Na Menehune heads to the mainland this week to play Sierra Vista (Nev.) on Friday night.
No. 1 Saint Louis, which has held the top spot for 39 straight weeks, moved up two spots to No. 8 in the latest MaxPreps Xcellent 25. The USA Today Super 25 is due out Tuesday, a day later than normal because of the holiday weekend.
No. 2 Mililani held off No. 3 Punahou for the second spot by a single vote after the Buffanblu impressed voters with a 45-0 drubbing of Long Beach Poly (Calif.) on Saturday.
No. 4 Kahuku jumped past No. 5 Campbell after a 35-7 thumping of the Sabers on Saturday on the North Shore. Campbell remains ranked in the top 5 despite starting the year 1-3 with losses to No. 1 Saint Louis, No. 2 Mililani and the fourth-ranked Red Raiders. Campbell hosts O’Connor (Ariz.) in a special Thursday night game this week.
Kamehameha, which was idle over the weekend, is up one spot to No. 6 while Damien remains at No. 8.
Hilo also stayed put at No. 9 while the Mules dropped four spots to No. 10.
Lahainaluna (five) and Kapolei (three) also received votes.
