This past Saturday saw every Punahou wrestler competing for their respective ILH Championship.  The intermediate team had a frustrating start, losing several matches in the last few seconds by giving up a big move…they were able to rebound slightly and finish the tournament tied for first with Kamehameha.  We expect there will be several good […]

We were also able to get some of our other girls exhibition matches, and they all battled hard in every position. It’s nice to see them making progress, and we certainly […]
