The cusp of the Star-Advertiser Girls Basketball Top 10 has become domain of the Valley Isle, it appears.
While ‘Iolani retained No. 1 status with all 10 first-place votes today, Lahainaluna moved up a notch to No. 9 and Maui landed in the Top 10 for the first time in several years.
Maui essentially replaces King Kekaulike after stunning Na Alii 63-52 last week at the Sabers’ gym. King Kekaulike had replaced Seabury Hall the week before after ending Lahainaluna’s 164-game win streak in MIL play.
Mid-Pacific (13-2) did not make the cut, but continues to interest the voting panel of coaches and media. The Owls have another ILH D-II showdown, this time with defending state champion Hawaii Baptist on Friday.
King Kekaulike, Seabury Hall and Mililani also received votes. Radford (8-5, 5-0 OIA West) did not receive a vote this week despite an unbeaten league record that includes a win at Mililani.
