The Trousdale County Yellow Jackets held their annual Lift-a-thon on Friday night at Jim Satterfield Middle School.

While overall and award winners were not recognized as in years past, the football players displayed their strength with three lifts and also raised funds that will benefit the program.

“It was a great turnout of fans to come and support these young gentlemen,” said coach Blake Satterfield. “We had gains in all three categories (bench, squat, clean) from seniors all the way down to our new freshmen.

“Thus far we have had an amazing spring practice followed by a great month in June. We still have much improving to do and we must realize that in order to get back to the level of play we want to be at, we must get better each and every day.

“I would like to thank our community for their support. These players will be asking for donations to our program in early July and we hope to have continued support from the community and fans!”

All football teams are currently in the mandatory summer dead period.

Golf tournament: The annual Yellow Jackets Golf Scramble has been set for Saturday, July 20 at 8 a.m. at Long Hollow Golf Course in Gallatin.

The entry fee is $100 per player or $400 per team of four. For more information, call coach Blake Satterfield at 615-633-8544 or email [email protected]
