Our amazing parents

This picture doesn’t accurately represent just how big an entourage we had in Minnesota. We had more fans than wrestlers join us on the long journey to Minnesota (I believe the final number was 26!) and it looked like they had just as rewarding a trip as we did. Besides watching the great wrestling and […]

Snow fight at 15 below zero

Some of the foolish fun we had in Rochester, MN. While we were waiting for our shuttle on Saturday night, the boys decided to amuse themselves with a snowball fight. Unfortunately, it was too cold to make snowballs so they just threw snow…and yes, it was really 15 below zero!

My apologies to our readers for the delay in this update. Saturday was a marathon of wrestling-related activities and of course, Sunday we made our way home. Day 2 of The Clash started with a 6:30am shuttle to morning weigh-ins. The snow that had caused so much chaos the day before had stopped, but the […]

Punahou Wrestling in the Minnesota Newspapers

As on our last trip to the Clash, we got nice coverage in the Minnesota papers. Here’s an article from the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Hearty Hawaiians test the air (brrrr), hit the mat Ben Pherson also did a piece on us for the Jan 6 edition of Rochester’s Post-Bulletin. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to link […]

Day 1 of The Clash is in the books and it was a day of good, but frustrating, wrestling. We dropped two dual meets to very good teams, but can’t help be frustrated that both duals seemed to turn on a single match. Overall we wrestled well and were head to head with one of […]

The Day Before The Clash

We spent the morning at the Rochester Athletic Club, definitely the nicest sports facility we’ve ever visited. 220,000 square feet under roof, the RAC features an indoor pool, basketball courts, racquetball courts, tennis courts, an incredible weight room – and those are just the highlights. And of course, with this great workout facility at their […]

We’re back. People here are still very, very nice and still look at us as if we’re crazy to leave Hawaii (80 degrees) and come to Rochester (6 degrees, but warming) in the winter. Our flight over was uneventful and it was nice to see some familiar faces waiting for us at the airport. Chuck […]
