Senior Skyler Miller took second place at 220 pounds. After receiving a first-round bye, Miller pinned Davis County’s Colton Kincart and then won a 10-7 decision over New London’s Kyle Davis to reach the finals. But second-ranked Daniel Gaffney of Iowa City Regina pinned Miller in 33 seconds in the finals match.

Saeugling received a bye in the first round, pinned Pekin’s Brad Beam and won an 8-3 decision over Davis County’s Ryan Fullenkamp en route to the finals. But Saeugling went up against top-ranked Tyler Foubert of Tri-County in the finals, and he got pinned in 45 seconds.
WACO senior Tommy Morris lost both of his matches at 170 pounds. After receiving a first-round bye, Morris was pinned by Davis County’s Logan Boas, who went on to win the 170-pound title. In the consolation bracket, Morris lost a 7-0 decision to Moravia’s Alex Cloyed.
