Tony Cobbs had an absolutely awesome day! Not only did Tony set all new personal records in all 3 lifts and total weight lifted, Tony set an all class record in the clean with a 280lb lift! Tony also set a new Junior class squat record at 460lbs, the best of any Junior in Piper High School history at a meet. Finally, Tony joined the 1000lb club, a big feat for any lifter, only our second in school history with the other being Cooper Beebe. The total of Tony’s 3 lifts equalled exactly 1000lbs, a new Junior and weight class record. Fantastic day for this young man!!!
Point of emphasis, we had 12 female athletes compete today. From what Coach Brindle can recall in his time at Piper, that is the largest number to compete in a single competition in Piper High School history! It’s amazing what our female program is doing with the excellent buy in from our female sport coaches and encouraging them to be in our weight classes or winter strength and conditioning program! On another positive note, every single one of those lifters are an underclassman!
