For Metcalf, it was his fifth career Junior National title, leaving him just one shy of tying the national record for Junior titles at six, held by Sean Hage of Georgia. Metcalf was a Junior National double champion after his sophomore year in 2003 and after his junior year in 2004. In the gold medal finals, Metcalf scored a technical fall over Brandon Sitch of Washington, 11-0 in 2:17. He won nine matches on the title, earning eight technical falls and one decision. The only bout to last the full length was his 8-1 decision in the sixth round over Levi Price of Minnesota.
