State boys wrestling qualifiers

Hawaii Prep World has not been invited to the seeding meeting for the Texaco state wrestling championships this year, but we will post the brackets as soon as they are released.

Until then, here is the list of state qualifiers as we know them along with major accomplishments. The only hole we can find is in the 220 class, where the BIIF did not have a third qualifier. The spot will be filled by whichever league comes up in the rotation.

One interesting twist to this year’s seeding meeting will be that they are going to seed all five league champions rather than have the KIF champ jump in wherever he can. Where this will make a difference is the possibility of two league runners up facing each other in the first round.


Previously the seeding committee could avoid that, now it might be impossible in some cases.

Let’s get to it. Who do you have?
