Jim Thorpe would win their lone match at the 133 pound class with Ridge Snyder pinning Zak Kluchinsky in the first period.

The Spartans then rode a string of four pin fall victories. Wrestlers Zander McElhenny, Braydon Kessler, Ricky Halford, and Jimmy Weikel picked up the wins.

After a forfeit victory for Dawson Kleeman, Spartan wrestler Cadyn McGraw got his first pin fall victory of the year in the third period of his match. The Spartans would get a pin at 215 for Jared Tinari and a forfeit win at 285 for Yerick Tlacuatl.
