Girls 107

2019 State Championships

Lahainaluna’s Sami Saribay, right, defeated Kapolei’s Allicia Mahoe in the girls 107-pound final at Pa’ani Challenge in December. The OIA and MIL champs could potentially face off again with a state title on the line. Photo by Kat Wade/Special to the Star-Advertiser.



Shantelle Mangrobang (Lei) vs. (2) Allicia Mahoe (Kapo)
— Mangrobang, fall 5:33

Mangrobang: “(Mahoe) helped me improve, showed me how to work with her and how I can work with myself better. (The journey) was really hard for me, because I have like mental blocks that say I couldn’t do it but I did it today.”

Notes: Mangrobang lost 8-2 in the OIA final but trips the leg and gets the first takedown for two points … 2-0 after 1 … Looks like Mangrobang is saved by the bell after two … Mahoe on top to start the third … Mahoe needs two points and goes for something but Mangrobang reverses it and it’s over. Mangrobang with the pin to win it all.


Sami Saribay (Lah) vs. Nohea Moniz (KSK)

Patricia Pahinag (Kalani) vs. Mya Cullen-Leong (Camp)

— Mahoe, MD 12-0

This is the first of many stacked girls semifinals, with defending state champion Saribay assured of her third medal after earning her 10th state win on Wednesday. She can expect a rub from Mangrobang, who didn’t compete last year but showed her skills with a sixth-place finish, behind Saribay’s fifth, two years ago. Mahoe is new to 107 but has nearly as much state experience as anyone, going 11-6 in her career and reaching the state final last year. Mahoe is locked in for her fourth medal for Kapolei and faces a state neophyte in Moniz who can’t be discounted as the ILH champion and a girl who will be fighting for team points.
