It seems anyone can win at 112 pounds on any given day.

Kamehameha state champion Ashley Gooman was the latest to show off her skills, going 3-0 at the OIA/ILH Round Robin at Mililani on Saturday.

Gooman opened her day by pinning Pearl City’s Makana Cooper and closed it with a stoppage of Aiea’s Kristen Bareng. Her middle match of the day was the crowd-pleaser, though.

With Teniya Alo of Kahuku commanding all of the attention for her 5-4 win over Radford’s Angela Peralta, Gooman hooked up with Kaiser’s Tiare Ikei for another entertaining showdown.

Gooman won the match 2-1, adding it to her 6-2 win over the Cougar at Officials. Gooman lost to Lahainaluna’s Alexis Encinas in that tournament and Ikei turned around to beat the Luna at Pa’ani.

Other impressive performances belonged to Angelynn Baron of Roosevelt (102), Roosevelt’s Megan Mena (122), Jenna Awana of Waianae (132), Iwikehauokalewa Kinimaka of Campbell with a win over Zion-Grace Vierra of Kamehameha at 138, Tara Kaililabonon of Damien (145) and Kapolei’s Alynda Bushe (168).

Here are the complete results:

    Any results from the Kamehameha oia/ilh round Robin this past sat?

    I assume an “impressive performance” means 3 victories by pin (except for one wrestler which was noted). Please double check, there are two girls listed who got 2 wins by pin, but actually loss a match by fall.

    Possible consideration also for wrestlers with 2 pins in their 2 matches (when that’s all the matches they were assigned). There appears to be 7 additional wrestlers who won all their matches by pin.

    Thanks for keeping wrestling up front for all..

    Semantic police on patrol thanks to Gail S. Can you change into the content police and help with that instead of grumbling about the ones that actually add substance to the conversation Gail S?

    clappingforyou, I am trying to help, how else to do it? Definitely not grumbling, simply trying to correct errors and provide suggestions. Oh and thanking the author for his time & effort. You?

    Thanks for the update and brackets for the girls. It’s sad when the schedule 5 rounds for some and only wrestle 3 and depending on the byes you may only get 2 matches because they cut the tournament short. The end result is you get short changed, might only wrestler the easy matches, and never get to wrestler the top competition from the other leagues. It’s like playing only 3 quarters of a football game. For the number of participants in the sport, wrestling gets very little respect and the wrestling league coordinators don’t fight for their constituents. Sad. So, when will you update the P4P?

    If not tomorrow, I will do the P4P on Wednesday. No work on Tuesday, but plenty of golf.
