Chesterton High grad Lucas Davison won a silver medal last week at the UWW Junior World Wrestling Championships in Tallin, Estonia.

Davison was one of just three Americans to advance to a gold medal match after getting a trio of wins. Davison won by technical fall against Canada’s Jullen Choquette (10-0), decision over India’s Viky Viky (7-1) and pin against Mongolia’s Batmagnai Enkhtuvshin (1:14) to get into the finals.

Wrestling in the 92 kg (202 lbs) division, Davison fell 5-4 to Russia’s Alan Bagaev. A 1-1 match through the first period, Davison led 2-1 after the second period.

Both wrestlers got a takedown in the third period, but the Russian got a takedown with 23 seconds left in the match to win the gold.

As a team, the USA finished the three-day event with six medalists and were second overall as a team. Russia won the team gold with 168 points, while the US (120) and Iran (119) followed in the top three.
