Win Over Northwood 12/18/13

A job well done tonight and we are proud of all of our wrestlers as we defeat Northwood High School 64-10! With this win our dual record improves to 9-2. We had a solid performance with no real glaring issues, but we look forward to our next test as we face University High School in our 2nd league dual meet on January 8th.

From a Former Patriot Wrestler

Its odd really. It was just one little tick on a blue piece of paper. I didn’t think much of it then, but deciding to participate in high school wrestling in the last few weeks of middle school would put my life down a drastically different course. I’m not sure how many of you know me now, or even knew me then in middle school, but being a wrestler has helped me develop myself into the young adult I am today.

Coming into high school, I was somewhat shy, un-athletic, and a teenager lacking overall confidence. I did well in school, but it was wrestling that allowed me to discover another side to myself. As the coaches can attest, the following years would bear witness to my development into a more confident leader, both on and off the mat. I still remember the first few months of practice. I worked myself to tears, and frankly looking back, it’s a little embarrassing.

But as I put in the work, I found that I got better and better at the sport. It was liberating. There are few other sports out there where purely hard work can lead to success. In wrestling, no matter how athletic you become, no matter how much natural talent you have, there is still an element of practicing technique and drills to which few other sports can match. And honestly, this translates well into the rest of a wrestler’s life.

Yet, high school wrestling doesn’t last forever. Most of my teammates aren’t wrestling anymore after high school. I find less and less time to wrestle at my college club team. But the lessons one takes from being a wrestler lasts forever. To me, a successful wrestler doesn’t have to be the one who wins state title after state title (although that is admittedly impressive); a successful wrestler is one who can take the values they learned on the mat, and use them to become a better person.

IHS Scrimmage

Last weekend’s scrimmage at Irvine HS was our first opportunity to wrestle live. Our wrestlers competed hard!

Our Families Support Our Wrestlers!

All the families who attended Wrestling 101 had an opportunity for a complimentary family photo with their wrestler.

Wrestling 101

Hello everyone,

One week down! Practice has raised in intensity but our athletes have responded with vigor and they continue to improve. There are many new faces who are still just learning the ropes and this Thursday (Nov 21st) we are providing a crash course for both new wrestlers and parents. This will be a great opportunity to learn basic rules and terminology of the sport. Watching a match can be a bit confusing when you don’t have much experience with it. We would like to alleviate as much of that confusion as possible. Our tutorial will be held in the Beckman gym, where we will demonstrate the anatomy of a match so you know when to cheer on your child :), as well as explain common themes within the sport of which every fan should be aware (i.e. skin care, nutrition, rules, etc).

Doors will open at 5pm. There will be a meet and greet period before we start the demonstration at 6pm. We hope to end by 8pm.
