The ILH ruled girls sports in the fall like never before.

The league took six team championships in the recently-concluded season, adding another in Division II cheerleading which is dominated by females but is classified as a mixed sport. Sacred Hearts took the medium division in cheerleading while Moanalua took the large title.

‘Iolani’s girls were the only ones to win in more than one sport this fall, being crowned champions in bowling and Division I volleyball. Mid-Pacific won in air riflery, Hawaii Baptist broke Seabury Hall’s dominance in Division II cross country while Punahou won Division I, and Sacred Hearts beat all comers in Division II volleyball.

A single league had never swept the fall season since classification was instituted. The ILH won five of six two years ago, when Seabury Hall won Division II cross country.

Oahu’s private school league had the edge in the boys as well, winning three titles to the OIA and MIL’s two. The MIL won a league-high three boys team titles last year, and the boys from the Valley Isle are already two-thirds of the way there.

Overall, the ILH has 10 team trophies this year to the OIA’s three and the MIL’s two.
