What a NIGHT!
Thank you to Millersville, F&M and our BtS/LAWW Girls for a great night of wrestling!
A fantastic college dual meet that came down to criteria after a 21-21 final score and gave the RUPP Cup to Millersville after 10 years and also included 4 girls matches from our GIRLS ONLY training program.
Our ladies were ecstatic to put on a show!
All this followed up by a social at SPRINGHOUSE BREWERY!
Every member of the Beat the Streets staff is here for one reason. TO HELP KIDS. We chose to use the sport of wrestling to accomplish this.
Wrestling is a physically and mentally grueling sport that takes a lot out of a person, but in those trying moments, it teaches you lessons that you can apply to your daily life moving forward. The sport of wrestling helps put into perspective how your hard work will directly pay off…it may take some time, but the work will not go to waste. In wrestling, an athlete is held accountable for their own success or failure, and there is nowhere to hide from that accountability. Wrestling teaches you a lot more than you probably realize while you’re active in the sport, and once kids have time to reflect, the importance of this sport cannot be overstated. The trials and tribulations that even the most successful wrestlers face will prepare them to embrace challenges in life and work hard to overcome them. Ultimately, if you’re looking to be taught valuable life lessons, while joining a lifelong community…wrestling is the sport for you.
