Out of the 12 wrestlers, the team finished with 4 State Placers and 2 that missed placing by one match. Falling short were Damen Miller @ 120 lbs. and Jerry Rudiak @ 145 lbs.

Of the 4 state placers 3 were State Champions:

Both Alfonso and Preston defended their State titles they won last year. Also placing for the second time at 132 lbs was Mourece Ramirez who finished 5th, improving on his 6th palace from last year.

Nice job, Thunder!
