Angel City Grand Prix 2024

Posted: April 25, 2024

On Sunday, April 14th, Beat the Streets LA hosted its annual Angel City Grand Prix at Mt. San Antonio College.

We’re thrilled to witness the competition’s growth each year and see more talented young female athletes embracing the sport of wrestling.

Beat the Streets LA launched the Angel City Grand Prix in 2014 to empower female wrestlers through unique learning and competitive opportunities. We’re pleased to observe the evolving landscape of women’s wrestling providing increased chances for young female athletes as they pursue collegiate opportunities.

In 2019, the Inaugural National Collegiate Women’s Wrestling Championships took place at Adrian College in Michigan. Since then, the tournament has been inclusive of all NCAA varsity women’s wrestling programs at the DI, DII, and DIII levels.

This year, in February, women’s wrestling progressed toward becoming the 91st NCAA championship sport, with its projected first championship slated for winter 2026.

“We are excited to recommend women’s wrestling as the 91st NCAA championship sport,” said Ragean Hill, chair of the Committee on Women’s Athletics and executive associate athletics director/senior woman administrator at Charlotte. “We are extremely proud of the work that USA Wrestling has done to make this a reality in such a short period of time. Also, a special thank you to the men’s wrestling community for believing in our young women and championing this process.” (Source)

We anticipate offering more opportunities to our youth throughout the season, including our Tomorrow’s Leaders Workshops, the Beat the Streets National Camp & Duals, and Summer Wrestling Camp opportunities.

A heartfelt thank you to all our partners, especially Mt. Sac College, Coach David Rivera, and all the volunteers who contributed to making this event possible.
