The morning matches are underway as of roughly 10:15 a.m. here at Neal Blaisdell Arena.

The HHSAA is providing results via its in-house computerized system and I’ll post all of it as I receive it here at the press table. Nothing yet as there are six mats in action, a six-ring circus of championship wrestling.

A lot of talk — controversy? — regarding the plethora of elite wrestlers who are unseeded in this tourney for various reasons. But the one match I’m really zoning in on is the boys 138 weight class, where No. 1 seed Joshua Crimmins of Punahou will take on Mililani’s talented Zack Diamond. Why does it matter? Well, Diamond has been one of the top wrestlers in the state for awhile. Our erstwhile wrestling scribe, Jerry Campany, currently has Diamond ranked fourth statewide in his Pound-For-Pound Rankings. He happened to get injured at the OIA championships, and now Crimmins has the match of his life in the first action of his state tourney later today.

(You can see Jerry’s Girls Pound-For-Pound rankings here.)

I saw Crimmins get head-butted during the ILH Dual Championships nearly two weeks ago. His bell got rung, but he recovered and punished the Pac-Five wrestler the rest of the way. He played with a unique and understandable ferocity that day.

For what it’s worth, one longtime head coach noted to me this morning that these glitches — or whatever you want to call them — in the seeding/pairing system happen from time to time.

“Has it ever been this extreme,” I asked.

He said yes.
