Notes:
St. Paul’s Davey Patterson was voted the tournament’s Outstanding Wrestler. Because of snow days the tournament was moved from the previous weekend. This caused a conflict with the National Prep tournament held the same time as the MSA tournament. First year coach Allen Smith of Mount St. Joe decided to forgo the National Prep Tournament in favor of the MSA tournament. Mount St. Joseph wins it’s fourth consecutive MSA tournament.
