Junior World Results

Mekhi Lewis (Virginia Tech) capped off his impressive summer with a Junior World Championship. Lewis is a talent that the Hokies can’t wait to get into the lineup and will shuffle things accordingly this season. He received a favorable draw to advance to the finals, but that still means you have to prove it when you get there. His Azerbaijan opponent had no answers on how to score on him, and a 5-1 win brought home the title to the states.

Men’s Freestyle put two others in the finals and claimed two more with bronzes which placed them in 2nd place as a team. Some close matches and interesting calls made it feel like the talented team could have done more, but the level the American youth continues to develop is nothing but encouraging.

Macey Kilty stormed to the finals in impressive fashion especially considering she is Cadet eligible still. She dropped the final to a Russian who may be in their Senior lineup this quad. Alisha Howk used to awesome fireman dumps for pins and then in the semi’s dropped a heartbreaker when it was originally called a two for exposure at the buzzer. The review came back against her though, and she also dropped her bronze medal bout. It was tough sledding for the team as a whole, finishing 7th and only coming back with one medal.

Andrew Berreyesa, a Nevada native training out of Finger Lakes WC, claimed silver to get his first international medal. He lost to the defending world champion in what was an impressive tournament and a large feat. Cohlton Schultz added a bronze at heavyweight to claim two medals for the American Greco squad and a 10th place finish. Kamal Bey dropped his semi and bronze medal bouts after showing off his exciting throws that don’t appear to be of human ability. The talent improvement is certainly showing as the Greco program continues to make strides.
