The Alo girls of Kahuku cleaned out their group at the Aiea Invitational on Saturday.

Sisters Jocelyn Alo and Sabrina Alo were placed in the same pool (184.9-206 pounds) at the preseason event, and started their first matches at the same time on side-by-side mats.

Jocelyn drew Aiea’s Sarah Miner while Sabrina faced Waianae’s Mildred Keopuhiwa, who was fifth at states last year. Jocelyn, the reigning OIA champion and state placer (third) stuck Miner and Sabrina pinned Keopuhiwa within 15 seconds of that.


They then switched opponents and got nearly the same results, with Sabrina pinning Miner and Jocelyn beating Keopuhiwa 12-0.

Miner pinned Keopuhiwa when the third round came along, but there would be no match for first place. Jocelyn, a sophomore, forfeited the title match to her big sister, who is a junior to take second place.

    You guys should make it so we can comment on the rankings. That will open up the discussion big time.

    I plan on posting them here when I get to work around 2, fanatic. We also plan on adding team rankings after Moanalua and still undecided on weight class rankings at the same time but leaning toward yes.
