Beauty and the Beast Competition Combines Gymnastics and Wrestling
Crowds can watch both at the same time Friday at 7 p.m.
The gymnasts are the beauty in this off-Broadway story. Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School will host the fourth annual Beauty and the Beast event, a combined gymnastics and wrestling competition, at 7 p.m. Friday.
The event highlights “two outstanding programs,” said Brecksville-Broadview Heights Athletic Director Dan Kalinsky.
The Demon gymnasts will take on the 10-time championship winning Bees and Magnificat during the fourth annual event.
Kalinsky said the Brecksville-Broadview Heights gymnastics team hasn’t lost a competition since 2003, and the wrestling team hasn’t lost a dual meet in the Southwestern Conference since they were accepted in 2005.
Bees wrestlers will face Amherst in a dual meet while gymnasts take to the floor. Fans might be watching a girl perform on the balance beam one minute and switch to watch the wrestling match going on beside her the next, Kalinsky said.
The event typically gets a good-sized crowd, he said, adding that last year, he thinks close to 700 or 800 people filled the high school.
Tickets: $6 for adults; $3 for students and seniors.
When: The event begins at 7 p.m. and runs to about 9 p.m.
Who: The Demons will take on Magnificat and the host team in gymnastics while wrestlers from Amherst and Brecksville-Broadview Heights hit the mat.
