2022-2023 boys weightlifting season


Koen Devenny, Staffer

The Sunlake boys 2022-2023 weightlifting team started with many challenges and was close to not even having a season. Weeks into the season still without a coach, students who wanted to participate in this season did not have high hopes of it happening. Then after missing one meet and weeks of practices, coach Elijah showed up and brought the team together. Even with several weeks less of practice then other teams and only having 8 students on the team they still show up and represent the sch00l by winning meets. In the East side conference meet on March 1st, three out of eight players place: Zeke Johnson(freshman) placed third in traditional, Nick soler(senior) placed third in Olympic and second in traditional, and Koen Devenny(Junior) placed third in traditional. Even with a late start to a season and few numbers, this years boys weight lifting team will be chasing state titles.
