Philadelphia Wrestlers Earn Postseason Success

BTSPhilly   |   Mar 4, 2016

High School student-athletes throughout the city have been training hard all season in preparation for the postseason. Many have put in countless hours throughout the year with their coaches and that time has resulted in new levels of success for teams and individuals sponsored by Beat the Streets Philadelphia (BTSP). Although wins and losses are clearly not the priority of our staff and coaches, they are a by-product of the mentality that our coaches promote on a consistent basis. Each year since BTSP was founded our student-athletes have achieved more success against more established and historically successful schools and communities. In our first year of existence we had very few students that qualified for the regional tournament and this year alone 33 wrestlers from the Philadelphia Public League will be moving onto the regional tournament. This success on the mat runs parallel with the increase in graduation and college admittance rates of the students we sponsor and provides a small yet tangible indication of the collective progress that has been made. The Philadelphia Inquirer recently had an article regarding this success and you can view that with this link. - Philadelphia Inquirer Article on Postseason Success
