Team Hawaii makes history at Reno Worlds Wrestling Tournament

Apr 24, 2018 | PC Sports

Congratulations to Team Hawaii who recently competed and brought home multiple honors from the 2018 Reno Worlds Wrestling Tournament. Congratulations to the Team Hawaii 9 and under girls who captured the Reno Worlds Wrestling Tournament 9 and under team championship which was Hawaii's first team championship won at a National tournament.

Coach Cedric Yogi

"We recently took some kids to the Reno Worlds Wrestling Tournament.  I believe it is the largest youth Folkstyle tournament in the nation that attracts some of the top wrestlers from across the nation. We have kids from Hawaii who participate every year, but this year was a little special.  Our 9 and under girls made some history by winning Hawaii’s first wrestling team title at a National tournament.  Two of the girls will likely be future Chargers (my daughter Serah Yogi and Taydem Uyemura )." 

Great job! We are all very proud of you for your hard work and well deserved accomplishments while representing Hawaii with Pride and the Spirit of a Champion.
