Rhett Peak (9-7 GR) and Christian Forbes (4-5 GR) also represented Sand Springs and went 2-5 and 1-1, respectively.

They placed fourth in Freestyle with a 5-2 record, falling to Illinois and Washington. Glass (16-1 FS) went 5-1, suffering his first freestyle loss of the season. He recorded three tech falls and two pins, and his only loss was by a single point. Forbes (19-3 FS), who was also undefeated prior to the tournament, went 2-3. Ethan White (12-4 FS) went 0-3.

Oklahoma Blue placed 27th in Greco with a 3-4 record. White (1-1 GR) split his first two Greco matches of the season. They placed 20th in Freestyle with a 5-4 record. Peak (15-9 FS) went 3-3 with each of his wins coming via tech fall.
