Kahuku won its third Chevron/Hawai'i High School Athletic Association Girls Wrestling Championship in five years yesterday, holding off O'ahu Interscholastic Association rivals Farrington and Moanalua.

The Red Raiders finished with 143 points, followed by OIA champion Farrington (134.5), OIA runner-up Moanalua (129) and defending state champ Iolani (105).

Mysia Kamaka'ala was Kahuku's only individual champion, at 130 pounds, but the Red Raiders also got strong performances from finalists Danica Auna (108), Amanda Soliai (155) and Marlene Suckel (175). Also, Kahuku got a boost from Kalae Johnson (fourth place, 103) and Erin Ah Sue (fifth, 140).
