FHSU’s Ludwin Places 4th at Junior World Team Trials; Competes in Pan Am Games in July

FHSU-WRE-LudwinFort Hays State wrestler Adam Ludwin competed in the 2013 Junior World Team Trials this past weekend in Stillwater, Okla. in the Greco Roman discipline at 121 pounds. Ludwin qualified for the World Team Trials by placing fifth at the FILA Junior National Tournament in Las Vegas back in April. The bracket was small but comprised of only the United States elite Greco Roman wrestlers who qualified to get in this tournament. Ludwin finished with a record of 1-2 taking fourth.

“Adam wrestled pretty well,” said FHSU head coach Chas Thompson. “He was just on the wrong end of some controversial calls.  The calls could have gone either way and in both of his losses, Adam wins the match if the call goes his way. The good news is Adam gets to represent the United States at the Pan American Games in Santiago, Chile July 12-14 in both Freestyle and Greco Roman.”

Ludwin will be in Santiago, Chile from July 8-15 with team USA for the Pan American Games. He will be competing July 12-14 in two different styles, Freestyle and Greco Roman.

“We are excited for Adam to get this chance to represent the United States on such a big stage,” said Thompson. “The team is comprised of mostly NCAA Division I wrestlers. Adam is the only Division II wrestler on the roster as of now.”
