Julia Weldon was named the Co-Most Valuable athlete for the girls’ weight lifting team this year. She was asked what it felt like when they called her name at the recent awards banquet. Jessica Mond and Tamea Allen also represented Okeechobee at the state finals in Kissimmee this past year.

Weldon said she plans to be dedicated in the off season to improve her strength. Weldon says she enjoys the sports and encourages more girls to come out. She also plays volleyball and the strength training allows her to hit the ball harder.

Her top lift was 105 for clean and jerk and 1 hundred pounds for the bench press. Her goal for next year is to increase by 10 pounds in both events for next season.

Yearling girls basketball coach Tammy Wright has resigned. She said family and other obligations led her to that decision but she kept the door open to coach again in the future.

Coach Wright told her players at the Yearling athletic banquet in May. Yearling had a poor season this year with few experienced players on the team.

Wright said she did like the fact all of the players improved as the season went on. She hopes that 8th graders moving onto the high school will continue their basketball careers. She said the athleticism is there they just need to learn more about the game. She also praised the Lakeside youth basketball program for offering a travel basketball team in the summer months.
