Justice Lee

Justice Lee
Sophomore, Marathon

“Justice has been working for this moment from the time we walked out of the state meet last year.” – Jessie Schubert, Marathon weightlifting coach.

Justice Lee made it clear she was a force to be reckoned with last season when she qualified for the FHSAA State Championships in weightlifting as a freshman. Lee came home without a medal, but was not the least bit discouraged. In fact, she let her desire to be the best fuel her. She dedicated herself to getting stronger and perfecting her form, rarely missing a day of lifting and following coach Jessie Schubert’s instructions without hesitation or complaint. Her relentless pursuit of perfection paid off last weekend when she claimed dual state titles in girls weightlifting. 

The sophomore powerhouse will return to work this week in her third sport in hopes of making a second state appearance this year – this time in track and field, where she excels as a thrower. 

For her unwavering determination and refusal to be anything but the absolute best, Marathon’s Justice Lee is the Keys Weekly Athlete of the Week.
