BUDAPEST, Hungary -- Alli Ragan (Colorado Springs, Colo./New York AC) won a silver medal at 60 kg/132 lbs. on the final day of the World Championships on Sunday.

She dropped a frustrating 6-0 finals match to 18-year-old Xingru Pei of China, a match in which Ragan was not able to complete her offensive attacks, while Pei was able to score points with counters and defense.

Pei scored on a counter takedown and a stepout to lead 3-0 at the break. An early Ragan shot was countered to a stalemate, and set the tone for the match. The second period featured another stepout and a counter takedown for Pei, for the six-point margin of victory. Ragan was trying to open up the offense, but Pei had the answer to each attempt.
