Linn-Mar, a Class 3A school with seven rated wrestlers on the roster, posted a 5-0 record to place first on the day. Blue Earth Area, which has three rated wrestlers in Minnesota's Class A, finished second with a 4-1 record while Class 2A No. 10 Spirit Lake Park and its four ranked wrestlers placed third with a 3-2 record.

Forest City, the only team without a rated wrestler, went 2-3 to place fourth while ELC placed fifth with a 1-4 record and Bishop Heelan placed sixth.

Ramirez started his day with a 13-5 decision over Blue Earth's Mike Ankeny. He then pinned Bishop Heelan's Jared Ludwig in 37 seconds and Forest City's Nick Hall in 45 seconds and Linn-Mar's Manny Jeffery in 3:19 while receiving a forfeit from Spirit Lake Park to end the day.

Blake Gjerde (145) and Chase Bonner (220) were the only other wrestlers to finish the day with a winning record.

Gjerde went 4-1. He started the day with a 3-1 victory over Blue Earth's Luke Schavey. He then pinned Bishop Heelan's Bo Rus in 1:42 and won a 10-1 major decision over Forest city's Beau Sorenson. His own loss was by fall to Linn-Mar's Joe Northrup in 1:49. Northrup is rated second at that weight in Class 3A.

Gjerde ended the day with an 8-6 decision over Spirit Lake Park's Kenten Murray for his 20th win of the season as he improves to 20-7.

Bonner opened the day with a 5-2 win over Blue Earth's Micah Twedt and then won 6-5 over Bishop Heelan's Omar Marquez. But Forest City's Tyler Putney pinned him in 1:21 and then he lost 7-2 to Linn-Mar's Justin Green before receiving a forfeit from Spirit Lake Park.

ELC only team victory came in a 39-21 victory over Bishop Heelan as the Midgets won six of the eight contested matches.
