With overwhelming wins over Division II teams, Saint Louis and Kamehameha moved up two spots each in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Top 10 football poll this week.

The Crusaders are No. 3 and the Warriors are No. 4.

Farrington, after its 41-14 loss to Mililani, took a tumble from No. 3 to No. 6, and Leilehua dropped all the way from No. 4 to No. 8 after a 21-14 loss to Kahuku.

The Red Raiders moved up two spots to No. 5 after their win.

Meanwhile, Campbell by virtue of a 23-0 shutout of Aiea, rose one place to No. 7.

The top two teams — No. 1 Punahou and No. 2 Mililani — and the bottom two teams — No. 9 Lahainaluna and No. 10 Kaiser — stayed put.

In the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Top 10 girls volleyball poll, one big change occurred near the top. Moanalua moved up one spot to No. 3 after beating ‘Iolani in a benefit match last week. The Raiders dropped one place to No. 4.

Both Hawaii Baptist and Hilo entered the Top 10 in a tie for No. 10, and last week’s No. 10, Hawaii Prep, fell to unranked status.

No. 1 Kamehameha and No. 2 Punahou retained their spots and will play for the second time this season on Saturday at noon the Warriors’ Kekuhaupio Gym. On Sept. 25, Kamehameha fell behind one set and trailed 17-12 in the second set before rallying for a 24-26, 26-24, 25-21 win.

    It continues to be a shame that only one team comes out of the ILH to compete in the state playoffs. Two of the top teams in the state will be left out because of politics.

    ManuOKeKai, the ILH has voted against expanding the HHSAA D-I football state tournament every time a proposal has been submitted at the annual HIADA conference.
