The Piggott Mohawk weight lifting team hosted a meet with Hoxie on Thursday, March 19, at the old gym on Garfield Avenue. Athletes from both schools took part in a variety of weight-lifting and conditioning competitions, designed to prepare them for their respective sports. This marks the third such event the PHS lifters have taken part in this year, and the first ever held at Piggott High. The event was coordinated by the Mohawk football staff of Michael Harrell, Shawn Hearn and Walter Rau. There were also well over a dozen volunteers, including students and parents, helping with the effort. A good crowd of spectators was also in attendance as the athletes were put through their paces.
