Grant Willits picked up his fifth fall of the season against Clackamas' Nate Johnson. The Pueblo, Colo. native scored a takedown a minute into the match and secured the pin in 1-minute, 6-seconds.

Colton Beisley made his second start of the dual season at 165 pounds facing Colby Winnett. The sophomore wrestled a scoreless first period, but a reversal and two two-point near falls secured his first career dual win by decision, 7-1.

At 174 pounds it was the Colt Doyle show. A first period takedown and four-point near fall put the redshirt junior up 6-0. Doyle continued to rack up the points ending the match in the third period with a 16-1 technical fall.
