The finals have been set for the 2021 UWW Junior Greco-Roman Nationals, which began today at the Xtream Arena.

The finalists will compete in a best-of-three championship series, with the winners earning a spot on the U.S. Junior World Team which will compete in Tampere, Finland in August.

Among the finalist are U.S. Olympic Team Trials runner-up Braxton Amos of the Wisconsin RTC, who will battle Christian Carroll of the Midwest RTC in the finals series. Amos scored an 8-0 technical fall over returning UWW National champion Isaac Trumble of the Wolfpack WC in the semifinals. Amos is registered to compete in both styles this weekend.

Justin McCunn of the Viking WC, a 2020 UWW Junior Nationals Greco-Roman champion, seeks to win a second straight national title at 77 kg. He will face Matthew Singleton of Compound Wrestling in the championship series.

Tyler Hannah of the Combat WC School of Wrestling reached the 87 kg finals, defeating 2020 UWW Junior Nationals champion Jack Darrah of Xtreme Training, 8-5 in the semifinals. It was a reversal of the 2020 UWW Junior finals, won by Darrah, 4-3. Hannah will battle Kodiak Stephens of Ebbets Pass Wrestling in the finals.

It was a good day for the Spartan Combat RTC, which punched three athletes into the championship finals series: Phillip Moomey at 60 kg, Chayse LaJoie at 63 kg and Jonathan Fagen at 82 kg. Moomey faces Nic Bouzakis of Pennsylvania in his finals, while LaJoie wrestles Dominic Damon of NMU-NTS, and Fagan battles James Burks of MWC Wrestling Academy for the title.

The heavyweight battle will feature a pair of Illinois natives who are now competing at the Div. I level, Luke Luffman of the Illinois RTC and Peter Christensen of the Wisconsin RTC.

The best two-of-three series begins at 4:00 p.m. Central time on FloWrestling
