|High School||Dan Whetstone|
Freshmen: In my weight class, 140s, there are only 7 to 9 girls. We do not really participate in dual tournaments.
Sophomore: I came into the season late, due to a dislocated shoulder, I wrestled 135s. I placed at districts 2nd. There was a mixup with my islands weight classes, girls had to be moved around and my wieght class had to wrestle districts again. I had sprained my ankle and placed 5th. My coach bumped me up to 140s, where I went to states as an alternate. I still placed in the top 8 wrestlers in the state for the 140s weight division.
Junior: I was Captain, my shoulder is now prone to dislocations. I wrestled 135s. There was only 2 other girls as my competition, but we were all fairly good, all making it to states before, and one placing 4th. I placed 3rd, my careless mistake. At states, I fought to redeem myself. I placed 5th. That is the highest a girl from Honokaa has ever placed. I broke the previous record.
Freshmen:At Districts, I placed 3rd. With an injured shoulder. Won 2 matches, lost 1.
Sophomore: I placed 2nd at our districts, where I was ranked 3rd. There was a mess up in the weight classes and we had to rewrestle a few days after I had sprained my ankle. I still went to states in the 140s weight class. Where I placed in the top 8.
Junior: Placed 3rd at districts. Shoulder still an issue 5th at States, broke school record. Won 4, lost 2.

I had a lot of good wins my freshmen year, my coaches and teammates did not think i would last through season when I started. I not only lasted season, but I got pretty good and was the only freshmen and only girl on my team to go to states. I love wrestling and I hope to get much better and achieve a lot more.
Sophomore year I worked hard, with several injuries (dislocating shoulder, sprained ankle) and I still did awesome. I placed 2nd the first time around and still placed in the top 8 afterwards, I am proud of my wrestling and hope to do even better next year.
I have received the Coach's award twice, and the Outstanding Wrestler's Award once.
I always try to encourage those around me, weather it be on or off the mat. New wrestlers need confidence if they are going to succeed in the sport and I always make sure that everyone is okay and ready to go the next round. Even when I am at school, I try to spread my knowledge and help everyone that I possibly can. There is only one of me, so I can only do so much, but no matter what, I will always try my best.
I try to eat well, and not suck weight too much, I also know that sleep is important and listen to my body's sleep cycle. Sometimes you need to push yourself in order to get better, but sometimes you just need to let your muscles and brain relax to be the best that you can be. Knowing your own body and the way that it works is the most important part of doing and improving your performance in anything.
I volunteer in many different activities. I am in many clubs and I love to help everyone. I have volunteered at the Lavaman triathlon, at the robotics fund raisers, at Relay for Life, at the elementary school, and a lot more. these are important to be because my community gives me so much, and I need to give back as much as possible.
