KEALAKEKUA — Konawaena and Hilo met on the hardcourt Monday evening with much more than a pair of undefeated records and league playoff seedings on the line. The Wildcat girls entered the game with 99 straight wins over BIIF opponents, a streak that started at the beginning of the 2009 season after Konawaena lost to Waiakea in the 2008 league championship game.

    The new three-tier system for the BIIF soccer season is designed, like with volleyball, to keep games closer by pairing together more similar skilled opponents. The system does work overall, especially for the top-tier Red Division teams like Kealakehe and Hawaii Preparatory Academy, who no longer have to play bottom — or Blue — tier teams.
