Heavy lifting at the high school

| May 29, 2018

The Sports Performance physical education elective at Solanco High School is benefiting our hard-working and dedicated student-athletes.  Students across six sections of boys classes and girls classes participated in the daily elective this school year.  Teacher Anthony Cox said the students recently participated in the annual Lift-a-Thon event, which tests their strength and power in various weight-lifting exercises.  Numerous students established personal records.
