The two-time defending state champions of the Interscholastic League of Honolulu cruised through Pool A yesterday, beating Aiea, 15-1, 15-10, then crushing Kohala, 15-0, 15-2.

The Warriors, winners of six of the last eight state titles and the No. 1-ranked team in the country, will play the No. 2-seeded Governors in the first quarterfinal, at 3:30 p.m. at the Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium.

Farrington lost to Pool B winner King Kekaulike of Maui, 15-4, 15-9, before eliminating Waiakea, 15-7, 15-6.

Kekaulike will face Na Alii of Aiea, who earlier had bumped the Cowboys from Kohala, 15-8, 15-9, before losing to Kamehameha. The two meet in the third quarterfinal, starting at 6.

Punahou, the only other team to win the state title in the last eight years, will face Kauai Interscholastic Federation champion Waimea at 4:45. The Buffanblu eliminated Roosevelt, 16-14, 15-9, before throttling Hilo, 15-5, 15-5 .

The Menehunes from the Garden Isle dropped Lanai, 17-15, 15-1, then fell to Pearl City, 15-5, 15-10. However, they were bailed out when the Chargers ended the Pine Lasses' season with a 15-5, 10-15, 15-12 victory over Lanai.
