There weren’t many matches at Kamehameha on Saturday, but Warriors’ 170-pounder Chasyn Aipoalani made the most of the three opportunities he did get.
Aipoalani pinned all three of his opponents at the OIA/ILH Round Robin at Kamehameha on Saturday, taking out Mark Guillot of Radford, Spike Kahalewai of Nanakuli and Castle’s Gabriel Kaneakalau before packing things up.
Aipoalani lost the only match he wrestled in at Officials, falling to Waianae’s Felix Dellatan and forfeiting his next match in the consolation bracket.
He wrestled at 170 last year, getting pinned in the first round of the state tournament and fighting back for two wins before losing to Anson Levi of Saint Louis. That loss cost him a medal.
Kamehameha had the most individual winners in the comforts of their home gym, with Aipoalani being joined by Shaydon Tomisato (106), Kysen Terukina (113), Micah Lee (152) and Amir Mirza (195).
The Warriors’ junior varsity squad picked up six wins in that portion of the tournament with Iokia Hokoana (106), Jacob Dold (120), Kahekili Pahio (120), Manalakalani Wolfgramm (126), Brad Souza (152) and Laakea Ane (195).
At the always exciting 126-pound class Corey Cabanban of Saint Louis (No. 2 pound-for-pound) was once again victorious, pinning Janoah Benavaro of Mililani before beating Campbell’s Triston Santos (No. 8 P4P) 3-2 and calling it a day. Santos won his other match by pin over Rylen Kuroiwa of Kaiser.
Alexandre Mimura of Pac-Five won his matches with two pins and a major decision at 145 pounds and Kawena Esperas of Castle matched him at 160 pounds.
