Junior Wyatt Thompson won that division.

Garrett Thompson, at 140 pounds; and Zach Berube, at 152, were third in their weight class. Michael Ostrem, 160; and Reid Mundahl, 103, placed fourth in their division.
Four other Panthers competed in the meet. Alex McClintock placed sixth at 215. John Holms (285); Brandon Sunaert (125); and Thomas Kleespie (171) did not place.
