With MIL football taking the weekend off for the Maui Fair, the local sports focus will be squarely on volleyball.

Tonight, Molokai and host Seabury Hall will match 4-0 marks in a battle of Division-II powers.

Tomorrow, seventh-ranked Kamehameha-Maui will put its 7-0 Division-I record on the line against visiting Baldwin.  The Warriors tuned up for that key match last night, sweeping past King Kekaulike 25-15, 25-17, 25-13.

Kamehameha handed the 6-1 Bears their only league loss a couple of weeks back, defeating them in three close sets.
