Creighton Newell took home a 14th-place finish at 132, falling to Great Bend’s Jeffrey Spragis in the 13th-place match.
Chase Voth was the only Indian to win his final match of the weekend, though it came by injury default in the 15th-place match.
The Indians are off until Thursday when they take on Garden City in a 5 p.m. dual at the HHS gym.
