On Friday, 14 boys and 8 girls will step onto the mat, representing Punahou School in what we hope to be a very successful weekend of wrestling. But there will be two young […]

Looking at Rick Dang’s pictures from The Clash reminded me of a great story that I should’ve written about earlier. When we checked in to the hotel, there was a message waiting for us at the front desk — “Call Ray Kealoha”, with a couple of phone numbers. Neither Matt or I knew who Ray […]

JV wrestled poorly against a very scrappy Kamehameha squad and dropped their first dual meet of the season, 30 – 31. The girls didn’t do too poorly, though missed an opportunity to step up against defending […]
