Men's Weightlifting wins the 2015 Metro West Championship
Senior Gio Clavier was DP's lone representative at the Men's Weightlifting State Championship in Kissimmee yesterday and nearly became our first place-winner in over ten years but it wasn't to be. Clavier (199 pound class) bench pressed a school-record 365 pounds (topping Jayson Taylor's 360 lb. mark back in 2003) but was unable to get a cleared lift in the clean and jerk segment. All of us that know Gio Clavier know he puts his heart and soul into everything and he did a tremendous job representing us in both Football and Weightlifting. It may not have worked out for him yesterday but he is now in our school record book probably for a very long time. Tremendous character kid and we will certainly miss him!
