Four other Wyoming wrestlers went 1-2; Broc Fletcher of 120 pounds from Rock Springs, Roany Profitt from Kemmerer at 120, Dalton Price from Thermopolis at 126 and Shane Hannah from Moorcroft.

The rest of the Wyoming crew went 2 and out; 120 pounds Darron Provost of Gillette, Luke Guseman of Kelly Walsh and Moorcrofts Trenten Gray.
