Wrestling is one of the most popular sports among student athletes nationwide, and Toledo Public Schools (TPS) continues working to bolster its wrestling program. As such, TPS would like to thank several supporters for their generous donations made to the program.

Beat The Streets USA Wrestling and volunteer chairman Al Bevilacqua donated $3,000 worth of head gear and shoes to the TPS wrestling program, while Brute’s R.E.A.C.H.E.S Program made a generous contribution of singlets and head gear for the wrestlers.

Brute and R.E.A.C.H.E.S have also provided additional equipment to the student wrestlers.

Currently, there are seven TPS wrestling teams – one team per learning community. Each team part of the program is comprised of students from their respective learning community.

In addition, Beat the Streets in partnership with USA Wrestling have established a K-6 wrestling program to support the extracurricular activities of youth throughout the city of Toledo. Practices for the Beat The Streets program are every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6:00-8:00 PM at Start High School.
