The highlight of this weeks match was wrestling new opponents. The weekend introduced a host of unfamiliar teams and wrestlers. There were two teams from the Brecksville tournament however nearly all matches presented unfamiliar foes and the chance to broaden our experience. Each wrestler faced 3 - 5 new faces and every Elk wrestler won at least one match. David Uzcha and Evan Pulaski led the match count with 3 victories each.

Joe Andrews won by major decision raising the score to 28-16 Elks.
