Geyer had falls over Grand Junction (0:09), Moffat County (0:43) and Central (4:23). He also had forfeit wins over Olathe and Meeker opponents.

Dale recorded falls over Grand Junction (1:11), Central (1:04), Olathe (0:47) and Meeker (0:35). Dale scored a 6-1 decision over Meeker in the third round.

Alex McCracken won all three of the matches (dec. over Grand Junction, fall over Olathe and technical fall over Meeker) at 132 and 160-pounder Jered Hulteen finished 4-1 (fall over Grand Junction, decision loss to Central, a forfeit win, decision over Olathe, fall over Meeker).
