He stuck Nathan Chase of Effingham in the 1st period (1:41). He then stuck Quentin Pillsbury of Olney, beating the clock in the 2nd period (3:54). In the championship match Duckett stuck Kurtis Owens of Mt. Olive in the 2nd period (3:23).

Senior Elliott Smithson (220), ranked 8th in the state, was seeded 2nd, but beat the seed and claimed the championship. Like Duckett, Smithson domainted, recording three straight pins for the crown.
Smithson stuck Kody Cohen of Cumberland in the 3rd period (4:43). He then stuck Ali Allen of Casey-Westfield/Cumberland in the 3nd period (4:36). He got to the title match against the #1 seed Devon Sievenking of Benton and stuck him as the 1st period was winding down (1:49) for the championship.
Noah Applegate (195), giving away 20 pounds, won his first match by a tech fall in 4:00. He then lost by fall, but then won in wrestlebacks, beating Brett Hodges of Effingham with a 3rd period pin (5:21), before bowing out.
