Although a new script presents itself at this year's 3A state wrestling tournament, it should be the same old story as far as the results are concerned.

Led by brothers Cody, Cole and Cael Sanderson, the Wasatch Wasps are heavy favorites to successfully defend their crown at the two-day event which begins today and will wrap up Saturday evening at Southern Utah University.Last year, the three brothers each claimed state titles to help the Wasps gain their second consecutive championship. But Wasatch's talent runs deeper than its family roots, just ask head coach Steve Sanderson, who happens to be the three boys' father.

"It's not just my three boys and me, it's a whole room full of kids that work exceptionally hard," said Sanderson adding that '94 state finalists Kyle Klonizos and Matt McNaughtan will also vie for titles.

The Wasps, ranked No. 13 in the nation by the USA Today, probably won't dominate this tournament as much as last year when they had six first-place finishers, but barring a complete breakdown, they should take the title.

"They're a solid team," said Cedar City's coach Renn Hoopes. "They have 10 or 12 kids that will knock heads with the best of them. Unless there's a major upset, Wasatch should take it."

The biggest fight should be for second place, but with a strong performance Union, Uintah, Delta and Cedar City could pull off an upset.

The 2A state wrestling championships, which are being held simultaneously at SUU, should be a tough battle with defending champ Millard looking to repeat. South Summit, Juab and North Sevier should also contend.
