BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (July 8) – The United States women ran away with the team title on day two of the Cadet Pan American Championships with all nine entrants claiming a medal, six of which were gold.

Cadet World bronze medalist Macey KILTY (USA, Stratford, WI) led the American effort with a virtually perfect performance at 60 kg. Kilty was spectacular in every phase of the game as she downed all three of her opponents by technical fall, pitching a shutout throughout.

The 60 kg gold-medal match pitted Kilty against a game opponent, Susana LOZANO VEYTIA (MEX). None-the-less, Kilty implemented her game plan to perfection in a 12-0 route of her Mexican adversary. The American accented her tournament win with a closeout four-point takedown.

The five additional American champions matched Kilty’s efforts in terms of supremacy over their respective weight categories.

Angel RIOS (USA), Tilynne VASQUEZ (USA) and Hannah RAMOS (USA, Kenosha, WI) also secured gold medals for the U.S. with impressive performances all around. Rios claimed the 46 kg title courtesy of a three-pin and one technical fall outing. Vasquez was victorious in three bouts to top the 49 kg bracket. Ramos went for one pin and one 10-0 bout to win the 65 kg gold.

Ramos brings home the gold

Hannah Ramos was worried.

Of course the soon-to-be junior wrestler at Bradford had the Cadet Pan American Games on her mind as she flew to Buenos Aires, Argentina. But she was just as concerned about making weight on her flight from New York.
She made weight Friday, and it was all downhill from there.
“Oh my gosh, it relieved so much stress,” she said. “I was so happy.”
Ramos, who had a first-round bye, won both freestyle matches at 143 pounds Saturday to bring home the gold medal.
Her first opponent was Peru’s Krizia Roa Ortega and she pinned her.
“I know I had to make a statement my first match, so right away my mentality is ‘throw’ because that’s my biggest move,” Ramos said. “I’m known for throwing, so I was like, ‘OK, I just have to lay it all out and show everyone what they’re working with.’”
Ramos’ championship bout was a few hours later, but she thought she was going to face someone else.
“I had no idea what I was walking into because I was watching the girl from Canada’s matches all day,” Ramos said.
However, the opponent was Ecuador’s Vicky Cevillano Porozo and she had never wrestled against her.
“I had to go with positive self-talk,” Ramos said.
