When Neosho's Christian Lopez took to the mat for the Class Three 220 lb championship, he needed a win to get his Wildcats at least a share of the title with Kearney. He got one in the ultimate tiebreaker, and for just the third time in state history, two schools will indeed share first place.

Lopez was joined by teammate Nate Rodriguez as an individual winner, while Monett's Chase Brennan won an individual title in Class Two competition, and Seneca's Will Roark won one in Class One. Seneca also finished third as a team in Class One.

Plus, in MIAA action, both the Pitt State men and women win at home, while both the Missouri Southern men and women fall.
