Sam Silva Memorial Wrestling tournament draws a crowd

WAIMEA — More than 50 wrestlers, including wrestlers from Maui and O‘ahu, wrangled through 62 bouts on Saturday during the Sam Silva Memorial Wrestling tournament at Clem Gomes Gym in Waimea.

In addition to the wrestling matches, coaches from Waimea and Kaua‘i high schools, Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation head official Frank Fillippi, KIF tournament directors and scoring table workers participated in the TrackWrestling training.

A Sunday clinic wrapped up the 2023 spring season.

“Everyone learned a lot. And we want to plan at least one more training event before the 2024 KIF wrestling season,” said KIF Wrestling Tournament Director Coach Mac Pigott.
