Last weekend, 22 members of the Morgan County High School (MCHS) football team represented Morgan County in the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association (GACA) AAA State Weightlifting Championships, placing fifth overall as a team.

The Morgan County team also had three athletes earn individual medals: Jesse Brooks took fifth in the 171-180 pound division, Dee Hubbard placed second in the 161-170 pound division.

Tevin Waller took second place in the heavyweight class. “Our players competed well, setting 16 personal bests,” said Coach Bill Malone. “Waller and Hubbard were our only seniors to compete out of the 22-player group, which bodes well for the future.” Congratulations to the team and the individual medalists from the weightlifting championships.
