HHS Lifters Bound for State

SHirt(Louisville, GA) — The Heard High school weightlifting team is headed for Louisville, GA Friday afternoon hoping to become three-peat champions at the GACA State Weightlifting meet which takes place Saturday at 10:00 a.m.

30 lifters will be on the Braves rosters in weight classes ranging from 140 and under to 246 and up.

One significant change at this year’s meet at Jefferson County High School will be the elimination of the deadlift. Competitors will only participate in the bench press and power clean this year.

Duranta Dunson, Zack Stephens, Hunter Lane will look to point for the second straight year.

The team will sorely miss several seniors who graduated last year including prolific competitor and two-time overall weight champ Tori Rogers.
