Mustang weightlifters ready for county meet

Roberto Rodriguez – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Wednesday Mustang weightlifters are leaving campus early to compete in a county meet.

The team includes Blaze McMichael, Marco Zimmerman, Mitchell Schuerman, Justice Moots, Sammy Benghuzzi, James Flahive, Cole Dukes, Joey Sirignano, Zach Busby, Andrew Lim, Michael Melquist, Noah Benghuzzi, Marcus Guy, Nick Limoncelli, Angelo LaFrese, Chase Sharp, Andrew Henry, Devonte Grooms, and Bailey Jackson.

This meet is hosting all the teams in the county the Mustangs will be leaving at 1 p.m. and the weigh-in will be at 2. The event is not for state titles in anyway; it is simply a meet leading to districts.

Sophomore Noah Benghuzzi said he’s looking forward to the meet.

“This is my first time on the lifting team at school and I have had a great experience with the team/program so far,” he said. “My prior football weight lifting conditioning has really helped me and so I also get two things out if this team. I get the technique for lifting in the future, along with keeping me in shape while off football season. I wish all my teammates the best of luck tomorrow and that the meet goes in our favor.”
