The team titles will have to wait, but the Lahainaluna High School wrestling teams each captured runner-up trophies to go with four individual titles at the Chevron State Championships on Saturday night at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu.
Bubba Jaramillo won his second straight title when he beat Radford's Liam Corbett 3-1 in the 145-pound boys final. Last season, Jaramillo won the 140 crown.
Carly Jaramillo won her second consecutive girls state title at 140, Lalelei Mataafa won again at 220 and Breanna Dudoit Vasquez claimed the 135 championship.
Lahainaluna High School’s Lalelei Mataafa faces Kaydie Tehotu of McKinley on the way to winning by pin in the Chevron State Wrestling Championships 220-pound final Saturday at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu.

The Lunas boys scored 146 points to finish second to Pearl City by 9 1/2. Lahainaluna's girls scored 164 to fall 14 points short of Kamehameha Kapalama.
Almost immediately after winning his crown, Bubba Jaramillo's attention turned to his sister's title match. She pinned Punahou's Zoe Hernandez with two seconds remaining.
"I was way more happier to see my sister win than me because I'm her biggest inspiration and when I do something, she wants to do it at the same level if not better," Bubba Jaramillo said. "This just brings so much joy to my heart to see not only me win a second title, but my sister as well."
Bubba Jaramillo went up 2-0 on a single-leg takedown 32 seconds into the match. Corbett escaped 27 seconds later to make it 2-1 going to the second period. Jaramillo escaped with one second left in the period and then rode out Corbett for the entire third.
Carly Jaramillo scored a takedown and two-point near fall to go up 4-0 after one period. Hernandez cut the deficit in half on a takedown with 35 seconds left in the second period.
Jaramillo went up 6-2 just 19 seconds into the third period on a reversal and then pinned Hernandez in a battle of returning state champions.
The Jaramillos are just the second brother-sister set with multiple state titles, joining the Chow family of Punahou - Mindy Chow won in 2010, 2011 and 2012, Chrissy Chow in 2008, 2010 and 2011 and Daniel Chow in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
Watching her brother win was significant for Carly Jaramillo.
"That was the main thing that inspired me because he has been my (training) partner all season, he really pushed and drove me to accomplish the same as he did," she said. "He is my older brother and one of my biggest role models."
One match before Carly Jaramillo won, Dudoit Vasquez beat Kapolei's Taysia Kano 7-3.
Dudoit Vasquez took a 4-0 lead in the first 45 seconds on a takedown and near fall and made it 6-0 on a takedown with 1:10 left in the second. Kano escaped with 42 seconds left in the match and scored a takedown 10 seconds later. Dudoit Vasquez's escape late in the match accounted for the final score.
"It felt really successful and my training paid off - I worked hard for that win," Dudoit Vasquez said.
All 11 of the Lahainaluna girls state qualifiers return next season.
"We're hungry for that (team) title next year," Dudoit Vasquez said. "We are going to come out hard and win it next year."
In the final match of the night, Mataafa went beyond the first period for the first time in her two-year, 25-match career, but won her second state title with a pin of Kaydie Tehotu of McKinley just 21 seconds into the second period.
"I wasn't surprised either because my finals match was a senior and she gave me a fighting match," said Mataafa, who is halfway to becoming the first four-time state champion in MIL history. "It feels great because even though I didn't win the way I wanted to, I still won my title.
"We are going to come back next year and get our revenge and win that (team) title."
No school from the Neighbor Islands has won a wrestling team title.
Earlier in the boys tournament, Lahainaluna's Zach Wigzell lost the 113 final 12-5 to Chance Ikei of Kaiser. One match later, the Lunas' Christian Balagso lost 10-4 to Campbell's Christian Natividad in the 120 final.
Molokai's Rizpah Torres-Umi lost 8-0 to Shannon Paaaina of Mid-Pacific Institute in the girls 125 championship match. In the next match, the 130 final, Baldwin's Shayna Boteilho was pinned in 53 seconds by Kamehameha Kapalama's Teshya Alo.
Baldwin was 10th in the boys team standings with 56 points, King Kekaulike was 27th with eight, Lanai and Maui High tied for 28th with seven each and Molokai tied for 38th with three.
In girls team scoring, Molokai was eighth with 71 1/2, Baldwin was 14th with 56, King Kekaulike tied for 22nd with 23, Maui High was 31st with 8 1/2 and Lanai was 32nd with seven.
