In addition to the Team Trophy, individual competitors from the Waynesville Judo team also claimed numerous gold, silver and bronze medals in their divisions. First place winners were: Braden Riggs, Max Rogers, Jessi Shell, Billy Frizzell, Eli Frizzell, Gage Cole, Dalton Greer and A.J. Flowe.

Second-place winners were: Trevor Phillips, Travis Austin, Carson Frizzell, Dessa Phillips, Mitchell Ensley, Greg Rogers and Samuel Danks. Third-place winners were: Jazzie Baxter and Cristian Kuehl.
