Geneva, Ohio. (June 4, 2022) – Incoming Cowboy Wrestling freshman Jore Volk added another impressive accolade to his resume on Saturday winning the U20 57kg freestyle title at the U20 World team trials in Geneva, Ohio. With the win Volk earns U20 world team member status and qualifies for the U20 world championships later this year. 

Volk had a busy day on his way to capturing the title, entering the tournament as the six seed he posted upsets over the No. 3 and No. 2 seeds in route to winning the challenge tournament to advance to the best of three finals.  

In the finals Volk faced Troy Spratley with the two grapplers splitting the first two matches and sending the series to a decisive third match. In the decisive match, Volk scored a push out point with just two seconds left winning the match 5-5 on criteria and capturing the U20 57kg freestyle title. 

 

Volk, a native of Lakeville, Minnesota, will come to Laramie in the fall to compete for the Pokes after having an impressive prep career at Lakeville North High School where he won three state titles.
