The event will continue on Saturday with the semifinal round.

In class 126, Palisade's Dalton Hannigan came from behind to beat Air Academy's Tyler Hanenberg, 7-3 in the quarterfinals. He will face Fernando Carrasco from Thunderbird in the semifinals on Saturday.
"I started off pretty slow today," Hannigan said. "Had a pretty rough first match, didn't wrestle too well. After that, I kind of got started. I'm pretty happy with how I wrestled today."
