Congrats to Coaches Tatti, Tatti, Randall, Wendell, and Johnson on a sweep in Powerlifting at Lake Orion this weekend. Our girls and boys all won first place in team competition. The Big Reds were well represented with over one hundred students! I want to highlight this club since so many of our kids find it to be a positive environment. This is where many find a sense of belonging in school. Way to go to the athletes and coaches!
