Junior Kysen Terukina secured a three-peat at state and led the Kamehameha Kapalama boy’s to a team state title. The Warriors blew past the competition with 228.5 points, that’s 74 points higher than second place Punahou. Kamehameha also won the girl’s team title.
The 126 pound wrestler is perfect in state championship matches after defeating Elija Kaawa of Saint Louis by a 4-1 decision.
“I just knew all that work I did this season was for that one match at the end,” said Terukina. “I just made sure I wrestled perfect. It’s not pressure from my family, it’s not pressure from my school, it’s pressure from myself that I just don’t want to lose.”
