Wrestling Closes Regular Season with Wins
The Molokai High School Boys and Girls Wrestling team had another successful weekend at Baldwin High last weekend at the JV Championships, coming home with three titles and a second place.
Though no official results were reported at press time, Head Coach Randy Manley said Alea Davis took first at 102 points, Shia English won at 122 pounds, Maile Kaahanui earned a win at 138 pounds, and Charnel Deluna took second at 132 pounds.
It was the team’s last regular season match before the MIL Championships at Maui High this weekend.
“Our position going into the MIL is not as clear as it has been in the last few years,” said Manley. “We have some kids in some very competitive weight classes. We’re going to train hard this week and pray hard too, we’ve got great kids and I am confident of good things.”
The state wrestling championships will be held the following weekend, Feb. 17-18, at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu.
