Strong Results for Wrestling
The Molokai Boys and Girls Wrestling team showed outstanding results at last week’s round robin tournament at Baldwin High School. The Farmers dominated many weight divisions with multiple top finishes.
Head Coach Randy Manley said his teams are getting better as they get closer to the MIL and State Championships.
“Yesterday was a good day for MHS wrestling,” he said. “We saw a number of improvements on both the girls’ and boys’ teams. There were stand out performances by Luhi Pedro, who defeated her Baldwin rival who has previously beaten her in two previous outings. Although defeated 8-5 by Lahainaluna’s Nalu Estrella, Caele Manley continued to move forward in performance. Freshman Kolee Pedro-Tabilangan also showed marked improvement and could be a surprise force to be reckoned with later this season.”
On the girls side, Kelsey Lee Bicoy-Juario (132 pounds) and Sehja Pedro (225) came in first, while Chaenel Deluna (132), Daisha Kahoalii-Kalilikane (138) and Martika English (184) finished in second, and Alana Morris (122) claimed third, with other teammates filing into fourth and fifth. For the boys, Kolee Pedro-Tabilangan (120) took second, while Jayse Lalim-Rillon (106) and Caele Manley (145) finished third.
