The top 2 teams were Canon McMillan and Latrobe. The team saw many firsts this weekend. They had their highest finish at this tournament, most finalists (3), and most medalists (8). They bought 12 of 16 kids back for Day 2. They had 9 wrestlers make the quarterfinals, placed 8, and had 2 others make it to within one win of a top 8 finish. Place winners for the Raiders were Connor Smith (2nd), Tyler Chappell (3rd), Max Jackman (2nd), Evan Vetter (6th), Marshall Adamson (3rd), TJ Border (3rd), Caden Matthews (2nd), and Tyler Yurich (5th).
