Add wrestling as a sport offered by O'Neill and Herrick Middle Schools

For the 2011-2012 school year, O’Neill and Herrick middle schools collectively had over 200 boys tryout for the basketball programs at their respective schools. With roster limits, it is estimated that nearly 100 boys at each school WERE NOT involved in a winter activity. The purpose of this petition is to effectively show support for adding a wrestling program to the middle school athletic programs as another alternative for boys beyond the basketball program. There is evidence of recent program additions at area middle schools in LaGrange and Glen Ellyn that this program can be a successful avenue to involve boys in an athletic program rather than simply send them home with no activity.
