- Eugene Khalabudnyak (17-9) at 138 pounds
- Mirlan Jumabaev (25-8) at 145 pounds

*Brandon Santiago (22-4) at 120 pounds had to be pulled from the tournament after suffering a sprained knee at the Sewanhawka West Team Duals. He is expected to be back for the PSAL Team Championships and the PSAL City Tournament.
