Lift Like a Girl By: Aniya Freeman

Lake Gibson’s girls weightlifting team is led by Coach Darbi and Coach Hargrove. Darbi has been coaching for a proud 2 seasons and foresees many more. During an interview with Coach Darbi, she was asked, “What is girls weightlifting?” Darbi stated that, “Weightlifting is an individual sport to test the strength on bench and clean and jerk. This sport allows each individual girl to test their abilities and put their hard work into an individual event, while overall competing as a team. By the end of the season, Darbi hopes to have over half the team competing in regionals and hopes to have all her underclassman back for another great season. The girls next competition will be on Thursday, December 27th, at Lakeland High School. Come out and show the girls your support.
