Miller goes 2-2 in Day 2 of USAW Nationals

FARGO, N.D. — Kokomo senior Fletcher Miller went 2-2 Friday in his four matches during Day 2 of the USA Wrestling Junior Freestyle Nationals.

After winning all four of his 220-pound class Pool B matches Thursday, Fletcher fell in his first match Friday, a 12-7 decision to Ohio’s Parker Knapp.

He battled back to pick up a 6-1 decision over Connecticut’s Andy Cavanna, then picked up a pin over Illinois’ Edgar Ruano in 5:59, to secure the No. 2 seed in his pool.

Miller was pinned by Utah’s Roy Nash at the 1:04 mark to open his round robin matches, falling to 6-2 overall for the tournament.

Wrestling continues today. But, with his success already in the first two days of the tournament, Miller has ensured himself a top-8 finish in his weight class, giving him All-American honors.

Miller will face North Carolina’s Kacee Hutchinson today in a third-place match.
