Sage Hill and Hunter Bourgeois each finished second for the Stars. At 160, Bourgeois was pinned in the title match by Colony’s Robert Haan. At 195, Hill finished 3-1, losing only to Isaiah Christy of Colony.

Also for the Stars, James Gallagher was third at 182, Rodney French was third at 195, Taylor Macrae was third at 220, Eli Daman was fourth at 152 and Dalton Best was fourth at 285.
