The Pirates were defeated in Libby, 57-30, before the holiday break.

This dual proved a little better than the last for the Pirates. However, not enough to walk away with a victory.

The Greenchain benefitted from three of the duals, winning by forfeits.

Classes AA, A, and B through C were included in the poll, among the No. 1 ranked wrestlers was Libby Greenchain Kyle Leir, for the 145-pound weight class.
