DAVISON (DTV)-(02/28/19) Strength and motivation are the two factors that make up the spirit of the Davison power-lifting team. The team has been lifting on and off for the past 2-3 years pretty much in secret but finally in 2017 they were officially recognized as a team.
Some people want to join the team to get stronger, like member Gabe Smith. Others join for more personal reasons, like Noah Young and Raea Miller. But in the beginning, no one really knew who or what the power-lifting team was because it was so small. Since becoming an officially recognized team, it has become more popular and recognized for what it is through a larger stream of word-of-mouth. Now more people are joining looking to make themselves stronger, and boost their self-confidence.
If you’d like to catch the team competing in states they will be at Ionia High School on March 9th & 10th. The competitions consist of dead-lifting, squatting, and bench pressing. We wish them the best of luck. Go cards!
