Winning by forfeiture were Ty Smith (106lbs), Jacob Baird (113lbs), Juan Dominguez (120lbs), Cash Crandall (126lbs), Domingo Ramirez (132lbs), Raphael DeSantiago (152lbs) and Broc Smith (160lbs). Bulldog Cresent Crandall (145lbs) lost a close match on points 14-13 and Cache Burnside (170lbs) lost his match 13-6. Winning their matches were Caleb Linge (195lbs) by major fall 19-11 and Hector Garcia (285lbs) also by major fall 10-2.
