As expected, Lahainaluna dominated the Maui Interscholastic League wrestling championships on Saturday at Baldwin High School. But it was a Molokai wrestler who earned the only No.1 seed out of the MIL in the upcoming state wrestling tournament.

Senior Mikayla Pico earned first place Saturday in the 100-pound class at the MIL championships by defeating Kiana Soloria of Kamehameha Maui.

Senior Mikayla Pico will be the top seed in the 98-pound division when the Chevron State Wrestling Championships begins Friday at the Blaisdell Arena.

Two girls from Molokai received No. 2 seeds — Rizpah Torrres-Umi at 120, and Charisse Manley at 125.

For the Molokai boys, two wrestlers qualified for state: Dhavin Spencer-Basa will be the No. 3 seed at 285 pounds and Kailen Inouye is No. 4 at 135.

The Lunas claimed eight MIL championships in the boys division. Lahainaluna qualified for state in all 14 weight classes and got two No. 2 seeds.
