Greg Hatcher and Don Schuler worked for the past two years developing wrestling in high schools first as a club sport while trying to get wrestling sanctioned. The victorious day came in June of 2008 when the AAA Board voted to sanction wrestling for the 2008-2009 season. 44 high schools will be a part of the initial High School wrestling season and each of the superintendents, athletic directors, and coaches of each of these schools are to be commended for being willing to step forward and give kids of their high schools opportunities.
