The Sabers defeated Iolani 28-7 in the championship game Friday.
Kamehameha, which conquered the Division I state championship with a 28-7 victory over Leilehua, collected all seven first-place votes.

Oahu Interscholastic Association champion Kahuku slipped to No. 3.
Lahainaluna, which lost to Kamehameha in the semifinals, finished at No. 5.
Interscholastic League of Honolulu Division I runner-up Saint Louis dropped to No. 5, followed by Mililani.
