Season 10 for the Titan Grapplers had its ups and downs, but ultimately the program has proven to be a force to be reckoned with. The Titans ended with a 6th place Dual State finish, and 8th place tournament finish out of 28 teams. Individually the team had 4 state placers: Mitch Parker 3rd, Jayden Burton 4th, Jaden Nelson 5th, and Tucker Bartels 6th. Kelby Kendall and Bridger Ostler both finished with losses in the blood round. Sam Sprehn, Kaden Montano, and Tyler Stark all won matches at state for the team. The program is in great shape with 3 state placers returning, 8 returning qualifiers, and a youth program that finished 3rd in all classifications.
The Titans finished 6th (out of 28 teams) at the 5A State Dual Tournament. This was a bittersweet outcome. We were shorthanded with 4 varsity wrestlers out with injury. Our backups were great however and helped us go 3-1 on the day to come back and finish 6th. Maybe with a little better health and performance we could have finished higher, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.
The team is looking to get healthy and finish strong at the individual tournaments the next two weeks. The state qualifier (divisionals) will be Wednesday and Thursday at the Legacy Center. See here for a divisional schedule. The 5A State Tournament will be the following Wednesday and Thursday at UVU. See here for a tournament schedule.
The Titans are set to put their hard work on the line over the next few weeks. The high school team is prepared to battle at the 5A Dual State meet at Jordan High on Wednesday at 1:00 pm. Our first round opponent will be American Fork. The Titans dominated the Cavemen earlier in the season, but AF has improved a lot since December and the Titans may be without a few of their best wrestlers that are battling injuries. Though potentially shorthanded, we expect the team to fare well at the Dual State Tournament and hope to make a run deep into the tournament. We will post results and next round opponents on our facebook page if you are interested in following our results. The following two weeks will include a chance for the individual wrestlers to accomplish their goals at divisionals, jv state, and the individual state tournament.

Our youth wrestlers are also getting ready to put their hard work on the line as they prepare for the Utah Youth Super State Tournament on Feb. 3-4 at the Legacy Center. Our youth wrestling team has proven to be a force worthy of our 2016-17 moto TITAN ARMY. We have had over 100 wrestlers compete at every local tournament we participated in. We also finished 4th place as a team at the prestigious Beehive Brawl down in Richfield last weekend. The future is bright for Syracuse Wrestling.
