Complete Rosters for the 2018 Cadet Greco-Roman World Championships

When the Team USA Cadets take the mat this week at the World Championships, it will have only been just over month since the team was selected. At any age group, that is a significantly short turnaround. If we’re talking about high schoolers, whom for the most part do not train this style on a full-time basis, it’s even shorter. Even still, the athletes who comprise the American squad in 2018 are not and should not be concerned about the timing. That’s because if you look up and down the lineup, you will see a balanced mix of explosive talent and hard-to-find overseas experience.

The US World Team has not had months to prepare, and usually, that would be construed as a negative. But it might actually work to their advantage, at least in one regard. The athletes are all fresh off of practicing Greco throughout the spring leading up to the Trials. There hasn’t been time for everyone to return home and re-engage in folkstyle or enter a series of tournaments. Moreover, a quick turnaround also means that even if an athlete is hitting a growth spurt, he is still less likely to experience an issue making weight on match day.

2018 USA Cadet Greco-Roman World Team

45 kg: Cale Anderson (WI)
48 kg: Brendan Chaowanapibool (WA)
51 kg: Jakason Burks (NE)
55 kg: Hunter Lewis (WI)
60 kg: Phillip Moomey (NE)
65 kg: Dominick Damon (WA)
71 kg: James Burks (NE)
80 kg: Jonathon Fagen (ID)
92 kg: Jacob Kaminski (IL)
110 kg: Luke Luffman (IL)

Coaches: Lucas Steldt (WI), Mark Rial (IA)

Jonathon Fagen (ID) takes over for Abe Assad (IL) due to the latter’s desire to focus on the freestyle portion of the event, representing the only roster change for Team USA. Fagen, who trains under Ivan Ivanov, is a versatile (and powerful) Greco athlete who has improved mightily over the past two seasons.

Interestingly, there are no holdovers from the 2017 squad. World Champion Cohlton Schultz (NYAC) aged out and he wasn’t the only one. On top of that, Lucas Byrd and Ridge Lovett chose to forgo the chance to give it another try, disappointing if only because of how talented they both are — and how impressively they performed last year. But that’s the point to all of this. Last year was last year. The American Cadets gearing up for battle next week possess just as much, if not more overall ability than we’ve seen in quite some time. They just happen to not be the beneficiaries of as much of a cushion in between tournaments as is usually the case each summer. If you read this past week’s Coach Lindland’s Report, chances are you’re aware that these circumstances are currently not being seen as a decided disadvantage for the US Cadet World Team.
