“I just wanted to be aggressive on the mat,” Kubiatowicz said. “It’s gone better this year than last year, and I’m excited for wrestlebacks.”

If any wrestler loses in the first round, he has a chance to make it to the match or third place, unless the wrestler who defeated them in the first round loses in the second.
