Coach wants Konawaena to wrestle with success

South Kona Wrestling Club had seven athletes place at a junior national tournament in July in Las Vegas (from left): Aliza Leander (fourth place, 122 pounds, 18U open); Abram Utrera (fourth, 130, 15U); Shey Paahana (sixth, 130, 15U); Reno Domingo (fourth, 152, 15U); Rhonalynne Domingo (fifth, 160, 15U); EnHao Zheng (fourth, 160, 15U); Jesse Schieber (sixth, 123 lbs, 15U).

While the BIIF’s fall sports remain in a holding pattern until late September during the Department of Education’s vaccination-driven shutdown, at least one coach of a winter sport, wrestling, is proceeding as planned.
