Punahou Returning to “The Clash”

Filed under The Clash 2010

Clash-Logo-290x200 Pack the parkas, we’re going back to Rochester! We had an incredible trip two years ago, wrestling in one of the top dual meet tournaments in the country and freezing our okole off. And now we’re going back for another dose of national caliber competition.

We learned a lot on our last trip, losing soundly to a top 10 team, but wrestling well enough on the second day to win our consolation bracket.

This year will be even tougher. The competition features 13(!) state championship teams and 10 teams that are nationally ranked.

As you can imagine, taking a wrestling team to Minnesota costs a lot of money, so we?ll be kicking off our fund raising efforts shortly. If you’d like to help, please contact Coach Jimmy.

We’re scheduled to leave on January 6, 2010, returning on the 10th. I’ll be blogging the trip on our web site, so please check back often.

  1. Can’t wait to have your wonderful back up here for another round of Northern hospitality. It’s a balmy 12 degrees out this morning but this nice weather won’t hold up until January. There’s probably a good chance it will be cold by then. Should be fun in any case.

    If anyone has a question or concern, please feel free to e-mail me anytime.

  2. Coach Keith says:

    Good Luck!!! Represent Hawaii well …. looking forward to the updates.

  3. We are planning on broadcasting Punahou’s second round match live over the internet during the Clash (11 am Central time on January 8, 2010). Parents and fans who are not able to make the trip will be able to watch the second round dual (for free) on Minnesota Sports Broadcast Network: http://www.mnsportsnetwork.com/schedule.php

    Also, fans will be able to track all match-by-match results on TrackWrestling.com (http://www.trackwrestling.com/tw/Login.jsp). Fans will get match scores at the conclusion of each match (instead of at the end of the dual). There are even other services (some of them have fees) for real-time (point-by-point scoring) and text message updates.
