Pena, seeded number one, pinned the second seed at 2:32 to win the title. Pena pinned all five of his opponents in the tournament. (Pena went on to win the 6A state tournament at 125 pounds. He is competing at 140 this year. Baltazar won the 2A state title at 125, and is competing at 135 pounds this year.)
