Kieran Shawhan started off the second place action after a narrow defeat by fall in the 113 pound weight class. In the 132 pound weight class Trevon Wells claimed second along with Class 3A’s sixth ranked 152 pound wrestler Luke Fistler who earned a second place finish as well. DC-G’s other ranked wrestler in 182 pound Zach Needham took home a second place finish as well.


The other top five finishes for the Mustangs included a third place finish for Brock Renshaw at 106 pounds along with Brody Burgher’s fifth place finish at 195 pounds.
