Every Monday through Thursday this summer, from 9 to 11 a.m., Soldotna High School has held weight lifting sessions for interested students.
Saturday, those students got to show off a summer of sacrifice at the 2016 USA Powerlifting Justin Maile Classic at Justin Maile Field at Soldotna High School.
Justin Maile is the father of Larry Maile, Ph.D., who, among many other accolades, is a member of the International Powerlifting Federation Hall of Fame.
Most, but not all, of the 34 lifters at the meet were a part of the Soldotna football program.
