Eleven Rebels placed in the consolation rounds.  They had three third-place finishers, four fourth-place finishers, a fifth-place finisher and three who placed sixth.  With George Femmer winning a state championship, that was all the Rebels needed.  Only two Rebels did not place in the top six.

Central senior Austin Gouedy won the school's and his third Division II championship via a fall in 3:30 over top-seeded Chris Montalbano of Rummel.

Seeded second, Gouedy pinned St. Michael's Beau Blackmon in 1:02 and, in the quarterfinals, defeated seventh-seed Roney Golding of East Jefferson via a fall in 1:09.  In the semifinals Gouedy defeated Colton Sonnier of Teurlings Catholic 8-1

Montalbano, Gouedy's opponent in the finals, pinned Gouedy in 3:35 in a dual meet and 4-0 in the Louisiana Classic.  But this was February, and Gouedy is not accustomed to losing in February.
