SOUTH POINT — The Coal Grove Hornets don’t mind giving you a lift, provided it’s attached to a barbell.

“I’m very proud of the kids for the hard work they are putting in,” said Coal Grove coach Evan Ferguson.

Wyatt Boggs at 165, Nate Harmon at 185, Trey Hunt at 195, Jeb Jones at 225, Ben Compliment at 250 and Josh Waulk at unlimited.
