In a thrilling showcase of talent and determination, the 2024 State Wrestling Championships unfolded with gripping matches and standout performances. Head Coach Randy Manley offered a comprehensive recap of the event, highlighting the triumphs and challenges faced by the team.

“We had a promising start at States, with four wrestlers reaching the consolation quarterfinals on day two, and two wrestlers advancing to the championship semifinals,” said Manely. “However, day two proved to be more challenging, resulting in the early elimination of four wrestlers. In the end, we celebrated two wrestlers making it to the podium: Jona Dudoit (4-2) securing fourth place and Ohia Borden-Phillips (4-2) earning fifth place.”

The journey to success was marked by notable performances from Sky Kaawa-Caparida, Kendra Kaulili, Kindy Sproat, and Reyn Raguindin, all of whom advanced to day two with stellar displays. Each wrestler exhibited grit and skill, finishing with commendable 3-2 records in their championship matches.

Stephanie Gandeza displayed her competitive spirit, achieving a solid 2-2 record in her matches, while Tiale Tancayo showcased determination despite facing tough opposition, finishing with a 1-2 record. Unfortunately, Kacey Dudoit was sidelined due to injury, unable to compete in the championships.

The State Wrestling Championship brought an end to a season characterized by resilience, commitment and success by the athletes and coaches.
