(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) -March 8 the LRHS boys weightlifting team received second place at the county championship at LRHS.

Next Wednesday the boys move onto districts, which will also be held here.

Weightlifting coach Jacob Sponsel said, “I think we did well. The kids lifted well and to the best of their ability, a lot of them even reached their personal best. We took second place which is good for the tough competition we have in the district.”

Sophomore Justice Moots said, “I think it went well, our only real rival at the meet yesterday was Manatee. I think next week we’ll strive to beat them.”

Senior Bailey Jackson said, “Yesterday was the greatest accomplishment of my life, I came in first.  I was able to do something I never thought was possible. Last year I placed third behind (Mustang) Gabriel Overmeyer. This year I am following in his footsteps and carving my own path to success.”
