State Wrestling (Boys) 2011 FINAL

State Wrestling (Girls) 2011 FINAL

Have you ever seen a state tournament like this? Have you ever witnessed so much emotion in every win, and so much devastation in every loss? The crowd was as loud as its ever been cheering, fighting, pleading, and screaming at the top of their lungs urging their wrestler to push past their limits for one chance at GLORY.

This year’s states had more than its fair share of controversies, storylines, and outcomes that could/should have been different.

There were 4 wrestlers going for their 3rd Individual State Championship. 3 won.

Shayden Terukina (112- ’08, 130- ’10, 135-’11)-had possibly the most dominating 2 years in Hawaii High School Wrestling. In 2 years at states and 8 matches, he racked up 8 pins, only one of them in the 3rd period. As a fan, the only words we can say to describe his wrestling is “poetry in motion”. His duck under will amaze you with how fluid his hips and body move together, his scrambling possess an incredible amount of body control and understanding of how the body works. And, He becomes Kamehameha Kapalama’s first ever 3x State Champion and 4x finalist, 10 minutes before Kamehameha Kapalama’s next 3x State Champion…

Jacob Luning Hoshino (135-’09, 135-’10, 140-’11)-Intelligent, methodical, and dominating. 3 words to describe “Jake the snake” Hoshino. He had one goal in mind, “Not let anyone score a point on me, not even an escape”.  There was one escape point scored on him the entire state tournament. Has there ever been a wrestler that has had only a single point scored on them? I cant think of any. Intelligent, methodical, and dominating. He becomes Kamehameha Kapalama’s second 3x State Champion and 1st 4x ILH Champion.

Ray Cooper (152-’09, 160-’10, 171-’11)-For the last 2 years Cooper has competed in the hardest weight class. For 2 years Cooper has lost in the preseason, and for 2 years he has finished atop the Podium. Ray Cooper has become the most intimidating presence in high school wrestling, and he has earned it. This season, he added a variety of tilts to go along with his power game.

Ian Akamine (140-‘o9, 145-’10)- Ian has 2 more state titles than 99% of anyone who has ever wrestled, and I hope he remembers that.  Ian’s strength throughout his wrestling career has always been a wicked top and bottom game. His signature move, a standing gramby that he has hit on some of the top wrestlers in the state is memorable, and we may never see another one quite like it.

A video of the 2011 HHSAA Wrestling Tournament will be released, and we promise it will be a Great one. Stay tuned

We will also be writing our take on other story lines that has developed during this year through0ut the coming weeks.

Patrick Sheehan, Bree Rapoza, Jonathan Pico, and others are some of our upcoming articles.

So we’re most of the way through the 2nd round.  There’s been the handful of people not making weight or wrestling like crap because they just barely made weight this morning.  There’s a few injuries–at least one of which required hospitalization–and then a couple of those really bad headbutts, late pushes, etc.  And of course the usual round of questionable and controversial calls.  *sigh*  So yeah….

But it’s a pretty smooth day overall.  We’re moving through everything fairly fast.  There’s just the consi quarters left and the rest of the girls 2nd round.  Hopefully we’ll be getting a bunch of pics and videos later today.  We were actually supposed to have pics earlier, but SOMEone sadly had no compatible cords/card readers….. so we’ll have to get to those later.  We ARE getting some videos at least.  😀  Anywho… moving quickly now.
