Beat the Streets student-athlete Freddy Guevera was one of only two New York wrestlers
named to the All-Tournament Freestyle Team at the Schoolboy National Duals held June 4th-8th in Indianapolis, IN.

Athletes that went undefeated after wrestling a minimum of five matches over the course of the tournament were named to the All-Tournament Team.

Great job, Guevera!


The Annual PSAL Wingate Awards Ceremony was held last night, recognizing the most outstanding senior student-athletes in each of the PSAL’s 44 respective sports.

Make it two perfect seasons.

The PSAL Girls Dual Meet Championship finals will take place tonight at Curtis High School in Staten Island, with the host and the Skyline Division's top-seeded Curtis Warriors taking on the 2nd-seeded Canarsie Chiefs. The match begins at 6:30pm.

These teams have a history.

This is a rematch of last year's final where Curtis won the inaugural PSAL Girls Wrestling Dual Championship 29-9. They met earlier this year, as well, with Curtis coming out on top 34-26. That was Canarsie's only dual loss of the season. Curtis has an all-time record of 21-0 in PSAL competition.

Also coming up this week is the PSAL Girls City Championship, which is taking place at Canarsie High School in Brooklyn. Weighins will be 8:30am - 9:30am and wrestling will begin at 10:30am.

Finals are expected to begin at 4:00pm, although that depends on the pace of the tournament and could very well be earlier or later.


Kyra Tirana Barry, the President of the Board of Beat the Streets, has just been named as the Team Leader for the 2014 US Women's World Team. 

Kyra has been instrumental in the evolution of Beat the Streets over the past three and a half years and the entire Beat the Streets family is thrilled she is deepening her involvement in the development and advocacy for women's wrestling. Her experience and aptitude are tremendous resources and this signals great things for the sport.

The 2014 PSAL Girls Dual Meet Championship final will feature the same two teams as last year.

Curtis (1st seed Skyline Division) and Canarsie (2nd see City Division) both made it back to the finals. Curtis was the victor last year, and punched their ticket this year via a 50-14 win over Bronx Science. Meanwhile, Canarsie upset top seed Brooklyn Tech 37-25 to secure their berth in the Championship finals.

This year’s championship match promises to be an exciting event as the last meeting between the two teams back on May 15th hinged on one match, with Curtis picking up a close 34-26 win.

As the higher seed, Curtis will serve as the host for the Championship match scheduled for 6:30 PM on Wednesday, May 28th.
