Season Wrap-Up

2018-19 Matdogs Take it to the Mat!

The SYA Matdog Wrestling program continues to grow and they wrapped up another fun-filled season in February/March!  We want to congratulate all 100 Matdogs that wrestled this Winter and their families for the tremendous support.  Our kids, whether participating strictly in practices, competing in state and regional competitions, and everywhere in between, always represented SYA well with great effort and attitude.  Many Matdogs achieved great success during the season, culminating in league championship and post season tournaments.  Congratulations to the following championship tournament placewinners:

  •  Northern Virginia Wrestling Federation Championship: Drake Winslow (1st), Chase Congdon (1st), Ben Eignor (1st), Noah Friesen (1st), Brendan Sholders (1st), Robbie Estabrooke (1st), Nathan Lim (2nd), Elijah Friesen (2nd), Max Chen (2nd), Jaiden Blackwell (2nd), Ben Herndon (2nd), Oden Barr (2nd), Ethan Eignor (2nd), Tony Sloboda (2nd), Sean Pena (2nd), Jeremiah Davis (3rd), Ryan Sholders (3rd), Mason Lim (3rd), Huda Johnson (3rd)
  • Top of the Podium Championships: Jacob Brubaker (1st), Amorin Saldana (1st), Jake Davilla (2nd), Ava Andersen (3rd), Sophia Pena (3rd), Brendan Sholders (4th)
  • Virginia State Championships: Ben Weader (Top 8), Jacob Brubaker, Brendan Sholders, & Levi Baxter (Top 12)
  • Middle Atlantic Wrestling Association (MAWA) District Championship: Levi Baxter (1st), Brendan Sholders (1st), Ben Weader (1st), Sean Pena (1st), Nathan Lim (2nd), Jacob Brubaker (2nd), Chase Congdon (3rd), Oden Barr (3rd), Mason Lim (4th), Joel Alvarado (5th)
  • MAWA Regional Championship: Sean Pena (4th)

Planning for the 2019-2020 season has already begun and we will continue to provide more team building opportunities, pair kids of similar experience/skill, age, and size for tailored instruction in practice, and expand our competition slate to ensure every interested Matdog can compete in tournaments that are right for their stage of development and help to enrich their experience and growth in the sport. 

We hope to continue the program’s recent rapid growth this coming Winter and look forward to meeting many new families in November!
