MEET YOUR MHS ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: WEIGHTLIFTER MALENA ROCKAFORT

Malena Rockafort
Sophomore
Girls weightlifting

What do you enjoy about being on the weightlifting team? I’ve made a lot of new friends, while gaining confidence through my strength. My team is the best part, though, because they always believe in me.

How long have you been on the team? This is my first year on the weightlifting team. A bunch of my friends recommended I join, and I’m so glad that I did. I definitely will continue to lift until my senior year. 

Describe one of your best moments in athletics. My first meet was incredible! Every week in practice I get better through my hard work. Last meet I went up by 10 pounds, and was so proud. I am super excited to continue progressing.

Coach Schubert says … “Add more weight, you can do it.” It’s easy to not want to add additional weight, because you’re afraid to mess up. Schubert is sure to continue to encourage me, and the whole team to perform the best we can. So when he says these words I get that extra boost I need to add the extra weight.
