Oklahoma State University redshirt sophomore and Charles Page High School alumnus Daton Fix is no stranger to international competition, and in September he’ll get to add one more country to his resume.

The four-time undefeated high school State Champion is coming off an impressive freshman campaign in which he won the Big 12 Championship and came in runner-up at the NCAA Tournament.

Last week he won a best-of-three series with Thomas Gilman to secure his spot on the Senior Freestyle World Team for the first time. Gilman is a Big Ten Champion from the University of Iowa and the defending World Team member with a 2017 Silver medal under his belt. He bested Fix 6-3 and 2-1 at the 2018 Final X.

Fix beat Gilman 8-4 at the U.S. Open in April to qualify for Final X. Gilman won the World Team Trials Challenge Tournament in May to earn a Final X rematch.

The first match was a landslide for Fix as he majored Gilman 9-1, but the Hawkeye came back with a 3-2 win in the second round. Fix scored a takedown with 24 seconds left in match three for a 6-3 win.

The Senior World Championship will be held September 14-22 in Nur-Sultan, the capital city of Kazakhstan.
