After a wild weekend in the national high school football landscape, Kahuku remained No. 8 in the latest MaxPreps rankings released Monday.
On Friday, No. 9 St. John Bosco defeated previously undefeated No. 1 Mater Dei 28-0 in a showdown between California’s top two teams. The then-No. 8 Red Raiders were idle after Leilehua forfeited the matchup, but they beat St. John Bosco in September, leading to a shakeup in the rankings.
