Boys 145: Jaramillo bleeding from the nose but up 7-2 in the second. He extends it to 11-3. Kamehameha’s Kieth Correa advances. Jaramillo’s match stopped again for blood. Announcer asks wrestlers to unplug their appliances outside of the arena and not to use the sockets, breakers in the Blaisdell are starting to trip. That’s a new one. Jaramillo wins 21-6. That was easy. Joshua Hao of Campbell advances, gets a nice hand. Quarters: Jaramillo vs. Yoshikawa, Correa vs. Lunasco, Hao vs. Inouye, Riviera vs. Corbett.

Quarters: Balagso vs. Agustin, Nakasone vs. Spain, Urabe vs. Ruiz, Somera Rickard vs. Natividad.

Boys 113: Cayde Tagami of Roosevelt is the first boy to advance here, followed by Kaiser’s Chance Ikei. Top seed Blaysen Terukina of Kamehameha is up 8-0 and will win, but Kalani’s Chaden Morisato is going to take him the distance. It’s over, Terukina wins. A little bit of homework from earlier in the week tells me that Shayden Terukina and Zach Hernandez were the two biggest stoppers of recent memory, both pinning their way through the state twice. Jason Spiker was the last to do it, in 2009.

Quarters: Terukina vs. Tagami, Ikei vs. Quevedo, Wigzell vs. Ng, Lee vs. Ilabon-Totten.

Boys 106: Brandon Aceret of Waialua and Mililani’s Kainoa Lanias hit the mat first. They are all alone out there. Maui’s John Paul Zane is the first winner of the day, pinning No. 4 seed Elison Galanto of Kealakehe. Cody Cabanban of Saint Louis is announced as a winner as well. No. 2 seed Jayson Pagurayan of Kapolei advances with a 4-1 win over Kerry Mizota of Mid-Pacific. Lanias wins his bout. Shazer Valeriano of Campbell beats Kamehameha’s Jayden Key Byrd.

Quarters: Kato vs. Lanias, Valeriano vs. Zane, Domingo vs. Cabanban, Watase vs. Pagurayan.

It sounds like a lot of changes to the brackets, I will try to keep up with the action here.

The first boys match of the day, Punahou’s Cameron Kato vs. Dallas Frederick of Waianae, will not be contested. Kato has a bye into the quarterfinals.

Fun with numbers:

Since 2000, a top four seed has won the boys state wrestling tournament 91 percent of the time.

The top seed wins 69 percent of the time.

State champs by league all time:
ILH 243
OIA 308
MIL 58
BIIF 35

Girls top seed wins 60 percent of the time and a top four seed wins 81 percent of the time.

Girls by league (since 2000):
ILH 49
OIA 90
MIL 11
BIIF 2

It looks like we are a long way from starting, but the HHSAA has tapped me into the live brackets. That’s pretty cool.
