Yesterday, the weightlifting team traveled to Bishop Moore for their first meet of the season.

Although they lost the meet, the boys fought hard and put up some impressive numbers. The final score was 50-30, with the Lakers winning 4 of the 6 weight classes we competed in! See below for a full list of accomplishments:
