The Tigers filled one of their most significant holes when Sam Ellifrits made his season debut at 285. Ellifrits made good on his long-awaited return, taking third by pinning Carl Junction's Jared Klouse in 2:37.

Daxtyn Osburn rounded out the medal-winners for the Tigers as he fell in a 19-9 decision to Willard's Gage Blake in the third-place bout at 138 to take fourth place.
