The new UA Little Rock Trojan Wrestling Team


Twelve years ago Mr. Hatcher and a group
of parents basically got together and said we want to start wrestling in
Arkansas. And that’s really where this began Greg started this campaign and
bought forty five high schools of Matt and gear to get their program started
off and from there wrestling’s just grown. We’re at around 70 high
schools that have wrestling programs. And we’re the second fastest growing state
in the country for wrestling. Our new facility it it’s about 18,000
square feet. We have four wrestling mats in the in the facility which is very few
programs in the country do. We have a full weight room… a locker room for
athletes and coaches… student athlete lounge. It’s really a one-stop shop for
us my student athletes don’t really have to leave for anything. We have 13 freshmen out of the 26 so
we’re about 50/50 right now. And then the rest range from having two years left to
three years left. We’ll grow over the next couple years to 38. And that would be about where we’ll stay. We’re in the Pac-12 conference. We’ll be
competing against teams like Arizona State, Oregon State, Stanford. I project
that we’re gonna compete hard and we’re gonna compete to win. And I expect those
things. So I don’t think it’d be far-fetched for us to win some good
duels this year and put some guys on the podium at the end at nationals you
