Wrestling rankings: Boys lightweights (132-152)

by Jerry Campany on January 2, 2014

Welcome to Hawaiiprepworld.com’s attempt at wrestling rankings. I can only rank based on results that I know, so please either email me directly at sapreps808@gmail.com or place your reports in the comments below. If I get one or two people saying that they saw a result, I will try my best to confirm it. If I get three, I will consider it fact. I am still missing Campbell, but I have the Garner Ivey, Officials and Kamehameha. I try to take head-to-head into account first, but if a wrestler wears the label ‘state placer,’ he will always get a bump from me. You will see some wrestlers ranked in more than one weight class. As long as they have competed in that weight class in the past month, they will be ranked there. They will drop out immediately if a month lapses.

Thank you in advance for your results, together we can make this work. I intend on updating these every Sunday night at the least, but may pop in with updates as I get them. On Saturday I am leaning toward going to the ILH, and have Pearl City results covered. All I really need from the other sites is someone with a keen eye to give me results any time anyone in a top 10 is in action, and the result of those matches.

FEBRUARY 20 UPDATE

132
1. Josh Terao, Pac-Five
2. Zachary Diamond, Mililani
3. Bishop Moore, Roosevelt
4. Cole Chandler, Pac-Five
5. Jachobe HUnter, Radford
6. Justin Inovejas, Lahainaluna
7. Austin Kuakuai, Waiakea
8. Shaiston Dacanay, Campbell
9. Sheldon Bailey, Waianae
10. Skylar Albright, Kapolei

Moore moves up to third after winning the East, I am not sure if that is fair to Chandler but I haven’t seen much from him. Hunter drops two spots after taking fifth in the West. Kuahuai jumps in at 7 as the BIIF champ, and Dacanay enters after taking second in the West. Albright takes Alvarado’s spot on Taloola’s comments but I never got those confirmed by a second source. Not sure what he has been up to lately and will switch it if I learn something different. I am usually very careful not to change things without confirmation, but this one feels right.

138
1. Braydon Akeo, Mililani
2. Thomas Stevenson, Baldwin
3. Brian Pascua, Iolani
4. Joshua Crimmins, Punahou
5. Robert Debrum, Lanai
6. Wyatt Chism, Lahainaluna
7. Uriel Santiago, Pahoa
8. Eugene Chung, Moanalua
9. Keaka Bringas, Kalaheo
10. Kaeo Skeele, Kaiser

Enough is enough, Terao drops because of inactivity to put Akeo at the top where he belongs. Stevenson and Pascua get big bumps, and Debrum jumps in at No. 5 after winning on Maui over Chism, who has rode his second-place finish at states for long enough. Santiago comes in just behind him as the BIIF champ and Chung enters after taking the East. Bringas enters after taking second in the East and Skeele hangs on to the last spot over Durham.

145
1. Liam Corbett, Radford
2. Keith Correa, Kamehameha
3. Bubba Jaramillo, Lahainaluna
4. Robert Campos, Lahainaluna
5. Connor Barfield, Punahou
6. Reed Hayashikawa, Pahoa
7. Cannan Kawaihae, Kailua
8. Timothy Rivera, Pearl City
9. Noah Caparida, Molokai
10. Joshua Hao, Campbell

This was really, really tough and could change as early as tonight but I really want to plow through these. The big news is that Jaramillo wrestled here last week and won. He enters at No. 3. Corbett won the West, he is a solid No. 1 and I am keeping Correa at NO. 2 although I am not sure what he has been up to. Reed Hayashida is the other big jumper after winning the BIIF and Kawaihae comes in right after him as the champ of the East. Rivera is second in the West and and Caparida finished ahead of Keian Inouye of Baldwin last week. A lot of really good guys unranked here right now, with Inouye joining Jonathan Lum Lung of Kamehameha-Maui even though the Warrior got a win this week, and Gabriel Jiminez of Mililani.

152
1. Jacob Solomon, Kalaheo
2. Bubba Jaramillo, Lahainaluna
3. Tristan Kamaka, Leilehua
4. Kalei Cabinting, King Kekaulike
5. Robert Campos, Lahainaluna
6. William Valdez, Punahou
7. Connor Villarmia, Damien
8. Ikaika Boyle, Kahuku
9. Jake Demello, Castle
10. Josh Gima, Aiea

Solomon still rules here, taking the East last week while Kamaka won the West. Jaramillo moved down, but he will stay No. 2 here for now after taking second at Officials. Boyle jumps in at No. 6 after finishing second in the East and Ikehara comes in at No. 8 for winning the BIIF. The last two spots are very subjective, I gave No. 9 to Marumoto for finishing second in the West and Kaahanui for winning on Maui. Castle’s Jake Demello is probably better, but he finished fourth in the East. I really don’t know where to put Cabinting and Campos, they haven’t been here since Maui.

JANUARY 5 UPDATE

1. Josh Terao, Pac-Five
2. Zachary Diamond, Mililani
3. Cole Chandler, Pac-Five

5. Bishop Moore, Roosevelt
6. Justin Inovejas, Lahainaluna
7. Trevor Alvardao, Pearl City
8. Slayden Lloyd, Baldwin
9. Sheldon Bailey, Waianae
10. Alex Mimura, Pac-Five

Moore won the Kamehameha tournament this week over Bailey, which gives the Garner Ivey some juice since Bailey finished sixth there. UPDATE: Terao pinned Diamond again, giving him his second-straight first-place finish in the class and Diamond his second-straight runner-up. Hunter came back from a 16-0 loss to Diamond to pin Pac-Five’s Alex Mimura and taking third by forfeit. Chandler was idle, and Hunter is right on his tail. Moore is solid in fifth with a gold medal this week. Mimura keeps his spot at No. 10, but Kaai Conradt of Kamehameha is right behind him.

7. Brian Pascua, ‘Iolani
8. Alika Durham, Kaiser
9. Kaeo Skeele, Kaiser
10. Skylar Albright, Kapolei

None of the top five wrestled this week, But Terao moves ahead of Akeo because the posters are right — head-to-head is king. Skeele won at Kamehameha, but he is behind Durham and Pascua, who placed at Officials. I watched the whole day of officials, I wish I had paid attention to Stevenson. UPDATE: I am bumping Pascua over Durham after his win this week was confirmed, it wasn’t head-to-head but Durham tripped a little bit at Kamehameha. Albright takes the 10th spot over Kamehameha’s Makoa Freitas.

6. Keian Inouye, Baldwin
7. Joshua Hao, Campbell
8. Jonathan Lum Lung, Kamehameha-Maui
9. Gabriel Jiminez, Mililani
10. Isaiah Kahoonei, Kailua

Correa was the only wrestler in the top five at the crossover this week, and he defended his No. 3 spot with a win there. It was a mess behind him, making it a tough decision between Main and Kamehameha’s Chad Farias for the last spot. UPDATE: Jake, the results I have put Jiminez fifth at MIT, not third, but I could see him over Lum Lung. I am not quite ready to make that move yet. Corbett picked up another tournament win this week, beating Josh Hao 3-0. Correa was also undefeated, so the top is set but where to place Hao, who was a state placer last year and made his debut her for the season. I am going to put him at No. 7, dropping everyone else down one.

152
1. Jacob Solomon, Kalaheo
2. Bubba Jaramillo, Lahainaluna
3. Tristan Kamaka, Leilehua
4. Kalei Cabinting, King Kekaulike
5. Robert Campos, Lahainaluna
6. William Valdez, Punahou
7. Connor Villarmia, Damien
8. Jake Demello, Castle
9. Josh Gima, Aiea
10. Alex Donner, Kaiser

Solomon remains king here, entering at Kamehameha and winning the weight class over Villarmia. Jake Demello made his debut here and won at Campbell with three pins, so I am putting him in at No. 8. I have no idea if that is a good place, we will find out eventually. It will be nice to see results from Maui this week, that might shake things up. I would have liked to see Leilehua’s Kamaka here last week.

***************************

I intend to update rankings for each weight class as the year goes by, here are the boys from 132-152. December results and state pedigree are the only factors weighed in. Results from neighbor islands are very hard to come by, I will take any results you have at jcampany@staradvertiser.com. This list is completely subjective and will be so throughout the season, feel free to correct me and corrections will be taken into account next week.

132
1. Josh Terao, Pac-Five
2. Zachary Diamond, Mililani
3. Cole Chandler, Pac-Five
4. Jachobe Hunter, Radford
5. Bishop Moore, Roosevelt

Terao wins any weight class he enters, no matter who opposes him. The three-time state champ competed here at officials and beat Zack Diamond in the final after stepping down and taking 132 on Maui. Diamond dominated Chandler in the final on Maui with Terao wrestling fellow state champ Braydon Akeo of Mililani. The difference between Terao and Diamond is as great a difference between Chandler and Diamond, no matter how good the nationally-ranked Terao is, because Diamond has some skills. Hunter took third at officials ahead of Moore, but the class was really weak after Terao and Diamond. Justin Inovejas of Lahainaluna is on the outside looking in after taking third on Maui and fifth at Leilehua.

138
1. Braydon Akeo, Mililani
2. Josh Terao, Pac-Five
3. Joshua Crimmins, Punahou
4. Wyatt Chism, Lahainaluna
5. Thomas Stevenson, Baldwin

Mililani's Braydon Akeo remains the man to beat in his weight class. (Jamm Aquino/The Honolulu Star-Advertiser).

Mililani’s Braydon Akeo remains the man to beat in his weight class. (Jamm Aquino/The Honolulu Star-Advertiser).


Terao is the greatest combat sports athlete the Hawaii prep game has ever seen, but he comes up behind his fellow state champion despite beating him on Maui because Akeo won officials while Terao destroyed the competition at 132. If Terao stays here, he will be No. 1 within a week. Akeo is no slouch, and this weight class is a lot tougher than 132. Put any of the top three alone at 132 and they dominate. Crimmins would be celebrated as a state champ already, and possibly one of the best in Hawaii, but he refuses to take the easy road and just wrestles anyone you put in front of him, even if it is a Terao or Akeo. As good as he is, he won’t be able to beat either of the two studs consistently, but an upset is not out of the question. Chism finished sixth at both Maui and Leilehua but he is a state runner-up and it isn’t hard to imagine him finding that form again despite his disappointing start to the season. It really hurts him that he won’t see a wrestler of Crimmins’ caliber again until states. That’s where Baldwin’s Stevenson comes in. If those two can push each other and grow in the MIL season, one of them could reach the state final. If one of them moves, it is likely over for both of them.

145
1. Bubba Jaramillo, Lahainaluna
2. Liam Corbett, Radford
3. Keith Correa, Kamehameha
4. Robert Campos, Lahainaluna
5. Connor Barfield, Punahou

Jaramillo, a defending state champ, rules this roost and might stay here after stepping up to 152 at officials and losing a close one in the final. Corbett won Officals with Jaramillo moving up, pinning Correa pretty easily after a boring first period. In reality, though, Jaramillo has no real reason to move and should run unopposed if he stays. Campos took third at Officials and a lot of that probably has to do with going against Jaramillo every day, but he doesn’t look like a state contender whether Jaramillo stays or not. Barfield was fifth at Officials behind Mililani’s Gabriel Jimenez, but he dominated Campbell’s Rennoldz Soares at 152 at Moanalua but his inability to finish him was a concern.

152
1. Jacob Solomon, Kalaheo
2. Bubba Jaramillo, Lahainaluna
3. Tristan Kamaka, Leilehua
4. Kalei Cabinting, King Kekaulike
5. Robert Campos, Lahainaluna

Solomon upset Jaramillo in the final here at Officials, and he will never upset anyone again. Not because he won’t beat Jaramillo again, but because he probably won’t be the underdog again. Jaramillo controlled Solomon in that match, but the Mustang showed a lot by scoring against the state champ. It could set up the match of the year if these two stay here, it depends on where coaches ask Jaramillo and Campos to go. Kamaka took third at Officials ahead of Punahou’s William Valdez and should be able to beat the Buffanblu when championships come around. Cabinting took third on Maui ahead of Campos, but those two are pretty even.

Maui news had a misprint….. Chism actually beat Debrum. That is confirmed……

Maui Info February 22, 2014 at 12:22 am

Justin LAH won @ 132
Thomas BAL won @ 138
Bubba LAH won @ 145
Robert LAH won @ 152

Jerry Campany February 23, 2014 at 12:08 am

Whew, thanks, Palea. That would have killed me.

Jerry Campany February 23, 2014 at 12:09 am

Thanks, Maui, do you have the full results anywhere? I can’t get past the Maui News’ paywall.

Jerry Campany February 23, 2014 at 12:15 am

Gottum

Talloola February 23, 2014 at 8:03 am

Hunter (RAD) is not qualified for states, so should not be ranked anymore. Also, Graziano is only in that position because of an overtime win to Marumoto(KPO) who owns two regulation wins over him.
