The Huron Wrestling program started in 1953 with a few football players practicing and competing on mattresses with canvas stretched over them. There were only two dual matches contested that year with the opponents being Cleveland John Marshall and Cleveland West Technical.
Wrestling would continue this way with more dual matches being added each year until 1956 when the team competed in six dual matches, a district tournament, and a state tournament.
In 1959 the school’s first State Champ was crowned as Billy Joe Armstrong won the 175 pound title.
In 1960-61 Huron competed in its first league tournament, the Lakeland Conference and Mike Barrett became Huron’s first conference champ.
In 1968-69 Huron competed in the Sandusky Bay Conference (SBC) for the first time and were crowned the champions. Huron continues to compete in the SBC today and it has developed into one of the strongest wrestling conferences in the State of Ohio.
Wrestling schedules and competition continued to improve over the years as Huron continued competition in the Sandusky Bay Conference. Over the years wrestling has evolved from a dual meet format with very few if any tournaments to the modern day format of tri-matches, many tournaments - some being multiple day tournaments, and the desire to wrestle as many matches possible in a season.
