The top two spots in Hawaii Prep World’s girls pound-for-pound rankings stayed consistent for the entire year.

Kahuku senior Teniya Alo pinned her way to the 138-pound state title to end her career as a three-time state champion and the No. 1 pound-for-pound wrestler in 2017-18.

Leilehua’s Kelani Corbett, who will surely take over the top spot to begin next year, added her third state crown to keep alive her hopes of a state slam.


After the top two, there were plenty of changes in the final rankings of the year. Below is the top 10, followed by the next 10 in alphabetical order.

A full-page spread of the top 10 is in today’s Honolulu Star-Advertiser, which includes one final look at Alo’s impressive senior season. You can read that here.
