The Oahu Interscholastic Association and Interscholastic League of Honolulu officially announced today their historic agreement in which both leagues will play interleague, regular-season football games, starting this fall.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser first reported the deal Feb. 13, but it did not become official until a vote by ILH principals Monday.
Under the agreement, OIA and ILH teams will play a full slate of games against each other in three divisions — Open, Division I and D-II.
“On behalf of the OIA membership, we’re pleased to have reached an agreement with the ILH to compete in an interleague schedule of non-league football games and look forward to exciting competition on all three divisions beginning with the upcoming season,” said OIA Executive Director Raymond Fujino in a news release. ILH director Blane Gaison went on to say “The ILH is very grateful and looking forward to this partnership with the OIA that will create renewed interest and benefit the athletic programs and student-athletes from both leagues.”
