2024-2025 Wrestling

Post by 808WrestlingFan »

Insiders, whats the latest? Has Campbell and Kapolei found their coaching staff? I heard rumors of Mililani and Baldwin needing new coaches as welll. Any truth to that? What weight do you see the returning studs going? Early prediction for boys, St. louis, KSK, Moanalu in the team race.

I saw that Kapolei just posted the job opening for the head coaching position, so I'm guessing it's not filled yet. I also heard the rumors that Mililani coaching staff is stepping down. Not sure if it's official yet though. Not sure about Baldwin, but last I heard from Lahaina was that coach Zane was moving to the Big Island, so it sounds like they may need a new coach as well. I also heard that Leilehua's boys coaches are no longer there, but coach Corbett is still leading the program. Does he take over the boys team or do they hire somebody else?

As for predictions, it's gotta be Kamehameha as the frontrunners, although I did hear random rumors that Cole Kusumoto and Dylan Landford might not wrestle this year. Any truth to those? Without those 2 returning state placers, there may be a chink in their armor. I don't think St. Louis will be as strong this year as they were last year. Sure, Hunter Berger and Eli Suan are returning, but McCreadie is now at Kaiser, from what I've heard. Not sure who else on their team is that strong. Moanalua will be tough again with 5 returning placers: 106 (Murillo), 113 (Tanaka), 132 (Wang), 138 (Taam), and 215 (Kaumavae). Mililani could be tough with 106 (Loughlin), 113 (Guevara returning to action), 138 (Shigemoto), but it could depend on that coaching staff situation. Kalani has a couple placers returning with 106 (Hotema) and 126 (Torres). Pearl City has Bicoy (113) returning as well as a strong incoming class of freshmen. One intriguing team to keep an eye on is Castle with 2 returning state champs: Kalaukoa (106) and Goeas (157) and I don't think they really graduated any of their starters from last year.

Anybody hear any other rumors or transfer news, etc?

@FlyingSquirrel808: Surprising that Kamehameha won the boys' state title last season, what with at least two of their blue-chippers choking. The only thing that saved the Warriors was their depth.

Heard from a reliable source 3 Mililani coaches stepped down including the head coaches. Some kind of drama with a clique of parents from a certain club is what im gathering. Idk who wants to take over under those circumstances but best of luck.

What’s your guys way to early P4P Rankings? I’ll be listing only 5 but feel free to drop yours down too (personal bias involved)
1. Keegan Goes(CSTL, 175,Sr)- realistically no one is beating him, he looks pretty massive so i’m thinking he lands in at 175 but what do you guys think?
T2.Tyger Taam(MOA,144,Sr)- One of the most technical guys but going up to 144 to play off for the 4x makes me tie him with mikah but I see him having the techniqal edge
T2(3). Mikah Labuanan(KSM,144,Sr)- Pure mayhem, interested to see how him and tyger play at officials if it does happen if one will dodge the other but mikah to me seems to have the physical edge and that IT factor that’ll be a extreme diff match for tyger.
4.Hunter Berger(STL,138,Jr)- Also an extreme technician don’t see him losing anytime soon going for his 3rd title, I know the weight may seem like a bit of a big jump but i think he ends up there or 132 since his club(Golden Backs) likes them to all not be in the same weight class
5. Analu Woode(NAN,106-120,Fr) It’s odd to put a freshman into 5 but he’s the real deal with placing 5th at fargo, beating previous state placers interested where hydrations put him but no doubt to me he wins a title this year but counterpoint is that the wins we’re in freestyle so should see how the upcoming weeks of folk will say
