Quotes from U.S. wrestler Kristie Marano and coaches Bill Scherr and Joe Corso after the Sunday morning session at the World Championships

Gary Abbott USA Wrestling

72 kg/158.5 lbs. - Kristie Marano, Colorado Springs, Colo. (New York AC)

"The match (against Hamaguchi) is the first time I got caught. I tried a drag. As I tried it, she cranked on my shoulder. I have a shoulder issue. Everything I practiced to protect it went out the window in the match."

"I don't think this match was much different than the others with her. I just got caught. I got worked up for the match. Everything else was working. I lost my mind a little out there."

"I will be ready for her to pull me through. I haven't taken anything off yet. I'll be ready to go."

(about the U.S. team)
"It's hard. We all have had our battles. I don't think there is anything else we could do. We prepared ourselves. We had eight weeks of training camps. There is not more that we could do. You can't control the outcome. You use it as fuel for next year."

U.S. Women's World Team coach Bill Scherr

"Overall, it is puzzling. Maybe losing is contagious. We have certainly caught the disease. Our condition was good. Our focus was good. We didn't force the match our way. We let the matches go their way."

U.S. Women's World Team coach Joe Corso

"You can't win if you don't take shots. You have to take risk. Katie didn't open up. There was no commitment. Kristie faced a tough competitor. She has to wrestle smart. She got caught on the same move twice. These are vital mistakes you can't make. You have to make adjustments. Sara took long shots that were not there and her opponent spun around behind her. Sara got anxious. Some of our women are taking one shot, not wrestling in combinations."

"We have the talent. They are just not winning. I am disappointed in their performance. We didn't get the outcome. It is all about getting the mind right. We did everything to prepare physically. It was mentally where we fell short. We need to be able to attack. We have talented women. We just weren't at the top of our game.
