The Eagles have landed in the Star-Advertiser Girls Basketball Top 10.

Hawaii Baptist (15-5) is at No. 10, replacing Kalani. The rest of the poll is mostly as it was a week ago with front-runner Maryknoll collecting all 10 first-place votes.

Campbell, which is 6-0 in the OIA West and 13-2 overall, moved up a notch to No. 8. Sacred Hearts, which lost two ILH Division II games last week, switched places with Campbell.

Led by Ally Wada, the HBA Eagles are 6-1 in ILH D-II play. The only loss came against unbeaten, sixth-ranked St. Francis (16-0) nine days ago. Wada scored 25 points in the overtime loss.

HBA and the rest of the ILH had no girls basketball games last week. Kalani fell to Kahuku 41-38 on the road in its lone OIA East contest last week. That was enough to bump the Falcons, who had just entered the Top 10 for the first time this winter.

Mid-Pacific (8-7) is on the cusp, just three points behind No. 10 HBA. Other teams receiving votes are Kahuku, Kalani, Kamehameha-Hawaii and Mililani.
