The rest of top 10 remains unchanged with Kahuku (7-1) still at the top spot.

With the start of the OIA D-I playoffs, No. 1 Kahuku, No. 4 Kapolei (7-1), No. 7 Mililani (5-2) and No. 9 Campbell (5-3) will be inactive this weekend after clinching first-round byes and a birth in at least the new HHSAA Division I State Tournament.
