Quotes from the USA vs. Russia dual 58 kg - Kerry Boumans, Colorado Springs, Colo. - "It feels real good to win the title here. I didn't wrestle really well at the U.S. Nationals last month, and I was able to use this as a tool going into the World Trials. Since the Nationals I have worked on being more aggressive with the coaches. I need to go out and get my points instead of waiting. I am making them wrestle and it worked well for me." 76 kg - Joe Williams, Iowa City, Iowa - "I felt better in this match. I had more to eat, so I've had more energy. Kevin Jackson and Mike Duroe were in my corner and emphasized scoring right away, which I was able to do." Final Team Standings 1. United States, 4-0 record, 8 pts. 2. Iran, 3-1 record, 6 pts. 3.
