Seabrook wrestlers bring political fight to the mat

Hoping voters will pay to buy equipment

(Continued)

“We’ll need to get sponsors to pay for uniforms, and we’ll have to find volunteer coaches,” Beaudoin said. “But I’m all for giving our kids as many opportunities as possible. The more kids are exposed to different sports, the better.”

Seabrook Recreation already has an extensive program of team sports, including multi-teams in leagues for flag and tackle football, basketball, softball, soccer and cheerleading.

“Kids that get into trouble are often those who aren’t involved in sports,” Beaudoin said. “You don’t have to go out and get into trouble to expend your energy if you’re involved in a sport. You use your energy in sports.”

Voters will have a chance to weigh in on the wrestling contest at the polls on Tuesday, March 12. Voting takes place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., appropriately enough, in the Recreation Center’s gymnasium.
