On February14, 2015, three Lift For Life Academy students took it to the mat at the Missouri State High School Activities Association’s district wrestling tournament at Whitfield School in Creve Coeur. This tournament decides which wrestlers move on to compete in the 85th MSHSAA Wrestling Championship at the Mizzou Arena on February 19-21.
High schoolers Tubias Johnson, Darrion Glover and Kalvin Williams all competed in the Class 1 District 1 tournament at Whitfield, and they should all be proud of the amazing effort they put forth. Each of these young men maintained passing grades throughout the semester and balanced their demanding wrestling schedules with school and other activities going on in their lives. That’s no easy feat!
Special congratulations are extended to Darrion Glover for finishing second in his weight class, qualifying him to move forward to the MSHSAA Championships at Mizzou! Way to go, Darrion! We’re excited to have him representing the LFLA Hawks at the state finals, and it is a huge honor whatever the result.
