Gillcoat and Joy capture Garner Ivey titles

Lahainaluna's Kawehi Gillcoat will try to be the second Luna in as many years to win the MIL slam. Cindy Ellen Russell / Star-Advertiser

Three boys from Maui, six from the mainland and four from Kamehameha won their weight classes Saturday in the 51st Garner Ivey Invitational at the War Memorial Gym in Wailuku, Maui.

Lahainaluna senior Kawehi Gillcoat, who placed in the top six at states three years in a row and is No. 7 in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s pound-for-pound rankings, knocked off Mililani’s Elijah Diamond 20-11 in the 138-pound final.

Baldwin’s Kahilihiwa Joy got past Lahainaluna’s Kanoa Lanoza 5-3 at 126 pounds. A year ago at the Officials tournament, Joy pulled off a big upset of Kamehameha’s Kysen Terukina, who went on to win his second state championship with a win over Joy in the 120-pound final.

Eight of the 10 p4p-ranked boys wrestlers did not compete on Maui, including Terukina, who is No. 1.

No. 10 Brant Porter of Kamehameha lost in Friday’s quarterfinals.

Baldwin’s Tobey Ravida (106 pound) was the other Valley Isle wrestler who won a title Saturday.

Sheydon Tomisato (113), Kanaipono Tapia (145), Braden Akima (160) and Brock Ai (220) won their weight divisions for Kamehameha, which finished at the top of the team standings.

Three wrestlers from La Grande (La Grande, Ore.) came through with close finals victories. Braden Carson edged Lahainaluna’s Zeff Dudoit 9-8 at 132 pounds, Parker Robinson defeated Grayson Livingston of Century (Hillsboro, Ore.) 4-3 at 170, and Nathan Reed upended Lahainaluna’s Ty Bates 6-4 at 182.

Ernesto Alvarez (152), Loudyn Reese (195) and Brody Reese (285) will be bringing titles home to Century High.

Of the 14 finals matches, only three were won by pin.

Finals and semifinals results are below.

In other wrestling news Saturday, No. 9 p4p Boltyn Taam of Saint Louis defeated No. 4 Branden Pagurayan of Kapolei, 1-0, on Oahu.

Pagurayan, who won the 152-pound state title as a freshman last season, defeated No. 5 Noah Wusstig of Moanalua last week.

Wusstig is the defending 138-pound state champion. Last season, Taam lost in the 145-pound state final to Campbell’s Zayren Terukina, who finished his career as a two-time state champ.

    Weakest boys lineup in years. All the elite wrestlers have graduated just Terukina left with a really weak field. Boys P4P is really soft no top names of the past like Cabanban, Cooper, Garcia, older terukinas , older paguryans ect.ect.
