Bryce Shoemaker had a solid tournament on the mat as an unattached wrestler, as he took third-place in the 133-pound bracket and senior 125-pound wrestler Alan Calahan also took third in his bracket.

Bryce Hood also took third place for the Wildcats in the 149-pound class and Connor Middleton advanced all the way to the final of the 157-pound class but fell to Sam Son who wrestled unattached. Nick Haugen took third in the 157-pound bracket.

Jakob Price had a solid match advancing to the final match of the 165-pound class, but the senior fell to Oshea Smith-Traylor an unattached wrestler in the final.

Bryant Guillen performed well in the 174-pound class, as he advanced to the final match of his weight class and fell to Bryce Carr of Northwest Tech.
