Cole Ulfers had not lost to a Louisiana opponent in his first 35 matches.  He placed second at the South Walton Border Wars, losing to a Wakulla, Florida opponent.  After that he won the Trey Culotta Invitational, placed fourth at the Prep Slam (losing twice to an opponent from Germantown, Tennessee), won the Louisiana Classic and the St. Tammany Parish Championships.

To make his second consecutive Division I finals match, Ulfers received a first-round bye and followed that with a fall in 2:15.  He won his quarterfinals match 9-3 but had a very hard time with fifth-seeded Axel Encalada-Arce of Baton Rouge in the semifinals, winning 3-1.

Brimmer won the Billy Duplessis Invitational, the Battle of New Orleans, placed third at the Louisiana Classic (Ulfers defeated him 11-5 in the semifinals) and won the District 7-8 5A championships.

Brimmer's road to the finals included an oddly long first-round pin in 5:18, followed by a more normal 1:42 fall in the second-round.  In the quarterfinals an injury prevented Byrd's seventh-seeded Tyler Tullier from finishing the match at 3:39, but he was able to pin third-seeded Ashton Freeman of Zachary in 5:19.
