Day two was just a formality as far as the team standings went. Day two also gave several Lowry wrestlers a chance to bring home an individual State Championship as well.

After Day One of the Nevada 3A State Championships held in the Cox Pavilion at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, the Bucks held a 100-point advantage over second-place Spring Creek. Lowry had ten wrestlers in the championship match, with six of those wrestlers placing first. Seniors Gus Duncan (145), Jace Billingsley (160), Ryan Nelson (182), and Fernando Herrera (285) all brought home individual state championships in their last year of high school. Also placing first were Beau and Michael Billingsley (152 and 170, respectively).

Wrestlers who brought home second place include Daniel Pollock (106), Eric Brooks (113), Aaron Nelson (126), and Cody Andersen (220).

Lowry also had three third-place finishers: Daniel Raynor (132), Tytin Johnson (220), and Luis Cardenas (285).

Lane Mentaberry (120) and Brandon Okuma (138) rounded out the Lowry individual scores, both finishing in fourth place.
