By: Beat the Streets
• For the first time, BTS will offer a $25 general admission ticket, good for admission to all of the match action, beginning with youth matchups at 2:30 and including the Team USA men and women's international event and concluding Super Matches. Fans can find their tickets at http://www.btsny.org/
• A Super High School Match has been scheduled, and it's a real winner, pitting the nation's top scholastic 126-lb. star in Patrick Glory of Delbarton H.S. (N.J.) against third-ranked Gavin Teasdale of Jefferson Morgan H.S. (Pa.). Glory, heading to Princeton in the fall, and Teasdale, who will attend Penn State, will wrestle at 130 lbs.
• BTS is planning a clinic featuring 2012 Olympian and longtime BTS supporter Jake Herbert on Friday, May 18, the day after the Benefit. Herbert will also be in attendance on the 17th, greeting young wrestlers, coaches and fans. BTS may also host another clinic earlier in the week; plans will be announced soon.
The Beat the Streets Benefit is coming together nicely, with several pieces in place. The Team USA women, whose roster includes Helen Maroulis, Alli Ragan and Tamyra Mensah-Stock, will take on a highly-regarded squad from Nigeria, and a lineup of Team USA men (TBD) will battle an opponent to be announced soon. In addition, two Super Matches will take place, with 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Jordan Burroughs battling Italian Frank Chamizo, and American standout Jordan Oliver challenging two-time Olympic Medalist Togrul Asgarov of Azerbaijan.
This year will mark the first time that Beat the Streets has held its annual event at Pier 17/South Street District. In 2013, the event dubbed "The Rumble on the Rails," was hosted in historic Grand Central Terminal and featured dual meets between Team USA, Russia and Iran. Playing an important role in the international Keep Olympic Wrestling effort, this historic wrestling event gained international media coverage and helped wrestling retain its status on the Olympic Games program.
