The Kapolei boys wrestling team went through the OIA West unbeaten through the regular season, now it has to step it up from the best of the East.

The Hurricanes face Kahuku in the first round of the dual meet championships on Saturday at Campbell while Moanalua takes on host Campbell. The winners of each dual face off in the championship.

Action begins at 10 a.m.


The Hurricanes are led by junior Shandon Ilaban Totten, who cruised through the regular season 10-0 at 126 pounds as well as Jayson and Andre Pagurayan as the undefeateds.

But the Hurricanes can expect things won’t be easy. Looking ahead to a possible battle of the unbeatens in Kapolei and Moanalua has a number of big battles lined up. They both would have to win in the semis, though, of course.

Kapolei v. Moanalua:
113: Aragon v. Pagurayan
120: Reyes v. Caniete
126: Ruiz v. Ilabon
132: Tabisola v. Nakama
152: Salera v. Bautista
182: Smith v. Ingalls


After the dual meet championships, the divisions split for one more week for individual titles before the OIA championship.

On the girls side, Pearl City takes on Roosevelt and Kahuku meets host Campbell with the winners wrestling each other to follow.

    It’s sad that this sport is barely covered this year. Who ever wrote on wrestling last year was on it. What happened to p4p list…where is top 5 in each weight class…zero coverage on outer island?!

    Hey drew, this is Jerry.

    Wrestling is pretty tough to cover during the regular season when results are so hard to come by. I am not out there every week any more, and if I can’t be sure of the results I don’t want to do it, especially not top five in weight classes.

    Hopefully next year we can set something more solid for the regular season.

    We did cover the dual championship for the paper last Saturday, you might have missed it, and we will cover the ILH duals this week.

    After that, I will probably update the pound-for-pound and start hitting it heavy again after that. I wonder if the state will let us into the seeding meeting again this year…

    Thanks Jerry,

    I’m a second year wrestling fan and look forward to your articles. I’ll admit I don’t often buy a paper. For a guy like me your updates on the web are just about the only way to keep me connected to this sport. I’m at all of the west OIA tournaments if there’s anything I can do to help next season let me know….
