Three members of the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Wrestling Teams have earned their spots on the U.S. Junior World Team at the trials in Irving, Texas.

Among them are two-time ALL-USA Wrestler of the Year Mark Hall from Apple Valley, Minn. The six-time state champion and Penn State signee downed Nittany Lions All-American Jason Nolf 10-0 by technical fall and then 10-6 in the best of three finals at 74 kg.

Hall, the 2014 Cadet world champion, earned a World Junior Team spot for the second consecutive year.

ALL-USA first-teamer Spencer Lee from Franklin Regional (Murrysville, Pa.), the 2015 Junior World champion, won both matches with first-period technical falls against 2015 Cadet Triple Crown winner Mosha Schwartz at 50 kg. In his prep career, the Iowa-bound Lee is 109-0.

ALL-USA second-teamer Daton Fix from Charles Page High (Sand Springs, Okla.) swept Austin Gomez with a pair of 10-0 technical falls to return to the World Junior Team. Fix was a bronze medalist at the 2015 WXX Cadet World Championships. In his prep career, Fix is 121-0.

Hall, Lee and Fix advanced directly to the final series by virtue of being champions at the UWW Junior Nationals in Las Vegas in April.
