To finish off the day, Johnston fell just short of winning the title as he lost 4-3 to UW-Madison's Shawn Perry in the championship match.
Zach Weisenberger (So.-Ladysmith, Wis.) also had a good day for the Blugolds as he took fourth place at 141 pounds. He finished 2-2 on the day.
At 125 pounds, JT Bernstein (Jr.-Highland Park, Ill.) finished fifth as did Joshua Baier (Fr.-Inver Grove Heights, Minn./Rosemount) at 141 and Jon Ames (Sr.-Genoa, Wis./Viroqua) at 157.
