The Bucks were nearly perfect against Cortez in a 66-12 win. Roque DeAnda wasted no time, winning by fall in just over a minute. Randy Jelly worked hard, but came up short in a loss. Kelland Brewer got taken down early but came back and pinned his opponent in the third period. Coltan Musselman led 9-0 before winning by fall in the second period. Trevor Wagstaff had a strong first period lead and won by fall in the second period. Austin Wilcox wrapped things up with a 27-second win by fall.
