Herkelman went on to the quarterfinals where she lost to Matt Victor of Indianola, 5-1.

In consolation round two, Herkelman was pinned by Des Moines North's Jordan Jones in 1:21.

Northrup won his first consolation round match by winning a 9-0 major decision over Glenwood's Same Jameson.  In his next consolation round match, Northrup lost to Pleasant Valley's Tyler Willers 3-2 in overtime.

Black was pinned in her first match by Bettendorf's Logan Ryan in 52 seconds.  In the consolation round, she was pinned by Mason City's Andres Gonzalez in 3:15.
