With just a week to go before the district competition in Miami on Wednesday, Jan. 25, Keys teams are putting the final touches on their seasons. On Jan. 11, Coral Shores traveled to Marathon for one of their final regular season meets. Marathon topped the ’Canes 100-53 in the traditional events and 91-58 in Olympic events. Top lifters, determined by an equation which takes an athlete’s weight class and total lifts into consideration, were Mikkel Ross of Marathon in first, Justice Lee Isom of Marathon in second and Rachel Rusch of Coral Shores in third. The teams faced one another once more prior to districts, this time in Tavernier on Jan. 18. Results were not yet available at press time.
