Bobby Mann (106) and Gabe Nagel (145) both made their first trip down to the state tournament, where they wound up falling in the opening rounds.

Mann faced Mt. Carmel's Chey Wood in the opening round, where he lost by a 6-1 decision.

Nagel opened up against Prairie Central's Simon Schuler, but lost by a tech. fall (15-0).
