Sheridan Qualifies for Junior World Championships
June 24, 2013
STILLWATER, Okla. - Rising junior Luke Sheridan seized the 2013 USA FILA Junior World Team Trials Greco Roman title at 84 kg/185 lbs., earning him a slot on Team USA's FILA Junior World Championships team. Sheridan will be one of 16 American Juniors competing for world titles on Aug. 13-18 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Sheridan won two straight over William Baker in the finals to place himself on the Junior World Team. He started with an 8-2 decision in the first bout before pinning Baker in under two minutes in match number two.
Success at the FILA Junior level is nothing new for Sheridan this offseason. Back in April, he won the Greco Junior Nationals without giving up a point and placed second in the Freestyle Junior Nationals while in Las Vegas. Sheridan wrestled a total of 13 matches that weekend, also competing in the US Open Senior level.
