A Very Successful First Season

The newly added Girls Weightlifting Team at DCS has been very successful. Coach Morales and 14 of his girls started off with practicing four times a week and working on different skills. Starting in November, they went to 5 different weightlifting competitions and they did very well. Then, they qualified to go to districts. At districts on January 19th, all five of the girls qualified to go to regionals! Regionals were held the weekend of January 26th in Fort Myers, Fl. Some of the girls were placed and won medals. Even though they didn’t qualify to go to States, the girls weightlifting team had a very successful first season.
