Very proud of the effort from our Panther Weight Lifting Team for winning the 2016 5A State Weight Meet Championship. This is Clarksville's first ever State Championship in Weight Lifting.
The Panthers partook in the 2016 Weight Meet, which included over 500 lifters and 40 different schools from around the state.
The Panthers, who finished third last year, tied the Wyne Yellow Jackets for their place amongst the top of the 5A this year. Only a year ago, the Wyne Yellow Jackets beat the Panthers by over 500lbs, this year they're splitting the championship.
The other classification champions were as follows:
6/7A - Greenwood
4A - Fountain Lake
3A Benton Harmony Grove
2A Junction City
This is evidence of the hard work these players and this coaching staff have devoted to the offseason program.
