The Winnfield Tigers added a new sport to their competition this year with Powerlifting. Coach Danny Carroll, along with Coach Jarvous Felton and Coach Lyn Bankston, melted together a group of students to participate in this challenging sport.

All season long these lifters, coaches, and those who were standing by to support gave their all. “The kids showed great character and competition drive during each meet. Being a first year program they excelled all year”, says Coach Carroll.
