Lynn Adds Wrestling

From the Item: “[Jared] realized that Lynn was without a wrestling program and approached BYW in the fall of 2014 with the hope that it could help him bring wrestling to Lynn.

‘Wrestling is a great sport for a lot of reasons – it teaches discipline, builds confidence and gives student-athletes of all sizes a chance to participate,’ said Nicholson, a Division I wrestler at Princeton University. ‘It is a particularly great fit for Lynn because of the low cost of participation for athletes and small space needs relative to other sports.’

“Lynn Public Schools will offer wrestling for the first time this winter. The team, which will be open to all Lynn middle-school students, will be run out of Marshall Middle School. The program will be supported by a donation from the Lynn business community, led by RCG LLC.”
