A fundraising tradition at Lincoln Southwest High School continues Jan. 17, 2018 when the Silver Hawks wrestling program hosts the "Takedowns for the Troops" celebration. LSW will wrestle Lincoln Southeast beginning at 6:30 p.m.
In 2013, the Lincoln Southwest High School wrestling program initiated the community involvement project in conjunction with Senior Night and Alumni Recognition Night. In the past four years, LSW Wrestling has raised thousands of dollars for the Disabled American Veterans (DAV).
“LSW Wrestling is proud to be the first team in Lincoln to undertake a community involvement event of this magnitude,” said Aaron Finley, head wrestling coach at Lincoln Southeast. “Our booster club made the initial pledge of $15 per takedown, and will continue to support us this season.”
Anyone wishing to help LSW wrestling raise money for this cause is asked to contact Coach Finley at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (402) 436-1306 ext. 66160.
“We would be happy to accept lump-sum donations, or you can pledge a certain amount per takedown in our dual versus the Rockets,” said Finley.
