Beat the Streets Girls Development Director Jacque Davis, major contributor to the success of girl's and women's wrestling in New York City, will be stepping down from her role at BTSNY on July 31 to pursue other opportunities. 

“Jacque Davis is by far one of the most passionate and hardest working coaches I have ever been around and she will be dearly missed at Beat the Streets," said BTSNY Executive Director Brendan Buckley. "She loves being on the mat and is a sponge when it comes to learning and improving as a coach and leader. Furthermore, she gives so much of herself to our kids, both on and off the mat. She serves as a mentor, friendsurrogate parent, and counselor to so many of our kids throughout the city and can always be counted on to provide whatever is required. Her impact on the growth of girls wrestling, in New York City and beyond, is immeasurable and her recruiting efforts have paid major dividends. We are proud of all she has done and wish her all the best in the future.
