The 2014 freestyle / Greco season begins on February 27th at 6:00 pm. The program is for dedicated pk-12 grade wrestlers. This is the program that has helped our high schoolers get to the level they are at. If we want to continue being one of the elite programs in Utah, the spring is where our champions have been built.

The Titans are off to an outstanding start. We are currently ranked 2nd in 5A and 3rd in all classifications. We have two tournament titles winning the Ed Spring Classic, CA and Syracuse Scuffle. Many individuals are having outstanding seasons. Brock George 113 lbs and Teague Vigil 145 lbs have been selected to the All-Star meet, which is next Tuesday at 7:00 pm. We are looking to finish strong with region duals coming up after the break and many more opportunities to make a name for ourselves. Unfortunately, we’ll have to do it without one of our best wrestlers. Seth Rich was forced to have surgery over the break on his shoulder. We will miss his points on the mat but he will be there every step of the way as we work to defend our Region title and State Runner-up finish from last season.
Great way to start the season last night. Wins against Mt View and Box Elder. Let’s keep it rolling and tear it up at the SCUFFLE this weekend. Also, good luck to our youth wrestlers heading to Fremont on Saturday.
The changing of the seasons brings with it a sense of anticipation. We can feel it, sense it, smell it in the air. As the leaves exchange their lush green for bright gold and red, our focus turns to the six months ahead. Slates are wiped clean, but goals and expectations of winning remain the same. Each day will deliver a new form of adversity, but we have the ability to meet them head on and overcome challenges. Some people believe in fate; that our future is predetermined. I believe in choices. We can accept mediocrity or decide to reach beyond our capabilities. Drop the weight or push through another rep. Sleep in or rise early. Slow down or sprint another 100 yards. Quit or embrace the grind. The smallest choices we make now will ultimately shape a large part of the future. It’s all about choices. And that’s the beauty of it.
Our 2013-14 edition of Titan Youth Wrestling is off and running. We have an awesome group of new and experienced wrestlers learning new skills and learning to appreciate this great sport. We have a record 248 participants this year. This is exciting news for Syracuse Wrestling as we continue to grow and build into a powerhouse wrestling program in the state of Utah. The youth will have their first matches this Saturday as we form small dual meet teams and give each team 2-3 matches. The matches will be at Syracuse High at 9:00 am.
Our 2013 youth wrestling program is now accepting registration. The first practice will be October 29. We will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays with matches on Saturday morning. For more information and a registration form click here.
Congratulations to Brock George. Third place in USA Wrestling Greco nationals. He had a great tournament finishing with a 5-1 record, defeating kids from all over the country.

All results are on trackwrestling, and all matches can be viewed live on themat.com.
The Titans will be attending the Boise State Team Camp on June 24-28. This is for grades 8-12. It is a great opportunity to learn from many NCAA All-American and the Boise State staff. You will also get 15 matches. The opportunity to roll with your future teammates is also a valuable experience. For more information please contact Coach Brown.
