Senior Scott Joll, junior Peyton Hall, and redshirt sophomore Austin Cooley of the West Virginia University wrestling team finished in the top eight of their respective weight classes to claim All-America status at the 2022 U23/U20 World Team Trials in Geneva, Ohio, over the weekend.

“I’m happy for Peyton, Austin, and Scott. Placing at a national event is always nice,” fifth-year coach Tim Flynn said. “Our team needed the competition and we certainly have some things to work on this summer.”

At 163 pounds (74kg), Hall led the way with a second-place showing in the U23 Men’s Freestyle after rattling off six wins to setup a best-of-three series against Iowa’s Patrick Kennedy in the finals.

Cooley also cracked the top five, finishing fifth with a 5-2 record at 202 pounds (92kg) in the U23 Men’s Freestyle, while Joll reached sixth at 191 pounds (87kg) of the U23 Greco-Roman tournament.
