National Wrestling Champ Cendall Manley
Molokai High School Wrestling alumnus Cendall Manley won the National Collegiate Wrestling Association 170 pound National Championship last weekend in Allen, Texas. Manley, the number two seed this year, wrestles as a sophomore at Liberty University. She defended her title, pinning top-seeded Saydie Kala of Southwestern Oregon in 4 minutes, 50 seconds in the final.
“I was very blessed to represent my school, my state, and my island, and God this weekend!” said Manley. “Wrestling has been such an amazing part of my life and I’m so thankful for my Molokai family who was cheering me on and praying for me the whole time! Love you all!”
The former 2016 Girls State Champion is the daughter of former Liberty wrestler Randy Manley (’87), who competed for Flames in the mid-1980s. Randy is the longtime Head Coach for Molokai Wrestling.
