Despite a 35-7 loss and having their 18-game win streak snapped by the nation’s top-ranked Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) over in the ninth island, the Kahuku Red Raiders (5-1) return to Oahu still as the top team in the islands, remaining at the No. 1 spot in the latest Cover2 Division I Power Poll.

The rest of the top five remains unchanged with the only movement coming in the latter half of the rankings.

Kamehameha (2-3) drops two spots to No. 8 after a 35-3 loss to No. 2 Saint Louis (4-0), the only remaining unbeaten team in Division I. As a result, both Mililani (4-1) and Farrington (5-1) move up one spot to No. 6 and No. 7, respectively.

No. 9 Baldwin (4-2) and No. 10 Iolani (3-3) also swap spots after the Raiders fell 49-24 to No. 3 Punahou (3-1).

In the Cover2 Division II Power Poll, Lahainaluna (3-3) makes their season debut at the No. 5 spot after a 35-7 win over Kamehameha-Maui (1-4).

Over on the Big Island, the previously fifth-ranked Hawaii-campus Kamehameha Warriors (4-1) also fell in their game this week, losing 3-0 to Kealakehe (1-3) and dropping out of the latest rankings.
