Juniors McKenzie Kennedy and Sophie Bush — pictured the morning of Aug. 11 working with medicine balls — are two of the half-dozen Grangeville girls who have put the new weight room to good use so far this off-season. Senior Madison Brown (not pictured) came back from a summer trip on which she spent her mornings working on volleyball and basketball skills. Volleyball coach Kelcey Edwards praised Brown’s effort to enlist teammates to join her at the GHS gym, which she did, she said, because she didn’t want to fall out of the morning workout routine.

Among Bulldogs football players, coach Jeff Lindsley said Booker Bush has been a regular at the weight room. “He’s stronger than some of our linemen, which shouldn’t be the case,” Lindsley said. Lindsley also explained that weight lifting is a key part of injury prevention and recovery.

There’s still some work to do on the weight room — the donor-funded project is about a month behind schedule — but with fall sports just around the corner GHS coaches are taking note of the work being done in it.
