Lynn Shore Showdown – Update July 2016

Thank you to all the wrestlers, coaches, volunteers and spectators who made the first annual Lynn Shore Showdown a huge success! Sixty wrestlers braved the heat, competed hard, showed great sportsmanship, and had a lot of fun. A special thank you to Boston Youth Wrestling, Friends of Lynn & Nahant Beach, DCR, and Seth Albaum for all your great work!

It was a blast to be able to show off Lynn and the wrestling community at its best!

Here is some coverage of the event from the Daily Item and Lynn Happens.

We’ve made some great progress on bringing wrestling to Lynn: Marshall Middle School is having a great season! The next step is the Lynn Shore Showdown, an amateur beach wrestling tournament with proceeds going to expanding wrestling in Lynn!

Beach wrestling is a great introduction to the sport and is fun for all ages. Come for the wrestling. Stay for the beach!
