Wasley’s title came at 170 pounds with a pin of Grant Cook of Amery in 1 minute, 49 seconds.
Tadan Holzer advanced with a second place finish at 145 pounds and Parker Shakleton took second at 182 while Josh Bair advanced with a second place finish at 285.
Somerset’s top finishers were Zach Maitrejean, at 152 pounds, and Landon Anez at 195, who both placed third.
