The Salem Quaker football team hosted South Range in the inaugural Power Dual weightlifting meet.  The event was divided into 11 weight classes with players competing in the squat, bench press, power clean and deadlift.  The top lifter for each team in each weight class determined the overall score with the winning team securing the traveling trophy.  This year’s battle was an overwhelming success as lifters from both squads challenged themselves and set numerous personal records.  The Quakers won 9 of 11 weight classes, secured the team title and took home both of the meet MVP awards.  Full results are below.
