CB Strongman competition is a rousing success

On Saturday, on the grounds of Monroe Park, in Colonial Beach, the Drifter athletic program hosted the second annual Strongman Competition. The competition featured athletes from Colonial Beach and Washington & Lee High School. Each athlete tested their strength gained during the off-season. From agility to sheer physical strength, athletes were pushed to the limit.

Eagle Greg Bankhead (lightweight) was the overall individual winner for each weight class. Drifter, Josh Sanford (middleweight) and Eagle Raymond

Johnson (heavyweight) won individual honors for their classes. While both schools earned points for an overall team total, the Drifters won the team trophy.

Athletes were divided into three weight classes: Lightweight 140-175 pounds (Marion McNeil, Greg Bankhead, Nick Brown, Travis Irvine, Jackson Catlett, Kiante Dickerson, Carter Foster); Middleweight 180-210 pounds (Jason Vickery, Josh Sanford, Davon Peyton, Robbie Sokol, Douglas Berry, Jamie Little, Tyler Vickery); Heavyweight 239-330 pounds (Raymond Johnson, Xzavius Tate, Tim Gordon, Jacob Hoffmaster).

The following strength and agility winners finished with outstanding performances: Iron-Cross: lightweight - Nick Brown, 1st; Jason Catlet, 2nd; Greg Bankhead, 3rd; middleweight - Jamie Little, 1st; Devon Peyton, 2nd; Robbie Sokol, 3rd ; heavyweight - Raymond Johnson, 1st; Tim Gordon, 2nd; Jacob Hoffmaster, 3rd; Farmer carry: lightweight – Greg Bankhead, 1st; Kiante Dickerson, 2nd; Jason Catlet, 3rd; middleweight -  Josh Sanford, 1st; Jason Vickery, 2nd; Robbie Sokol, 3rd; heavyweight – Jacob Hoffmaster, 1st; Raymond Johnson, 2nd; Tim Gordon, 3rd; Tire flip: lightweight – Kiante Dickerson, 1st; Greg Bankhead, 2nd; Marion McNeil, 3rd; middleweight – Jason Vickery, 1st; Robbie Sokol, 2nd; Josh Sanford, 3rd; heavyweight – Jacob Hoffmaster, 1st; Tim Gordon, 2nd; Xzavius Tate, 3rd; Jeep push/pull – lightweight – Greg Bankhead, 1st; Kiante Dickerson, 2nd; Jackson Catlett, 3rd; Josh Sanford, 1st; Jamie Little, 2nd; Jason Vickery, 3rd; heavyweight – Raymond Johnson, 1st; Jacob Hoffmaster, 2nd; Tim Gordon, 3rd; Tire throw: lightweight – Marion McNeil, 1st; Kiante Dickerson, 2nd; Greg Bankhead, 3rd; middleweight – Davon Peyton, 1st; Josh Sanford, 2nd; Jamie Little, 3rd; heavyweight – Raymond Johnson, 1st; Tim Gordon, 2nd; Jacob Hoffmaster, 3rd.

The Drifters athletic department would also like to thank the following sponsors for helping to provide event implements, and refreshments for the athletes: Big L Tire (Warsaw), Summit Recycling (Fredericksburg), Sheetz (King George), Food Lion (Montross) and Can’t Be Beat Auto Sales (King George).

SFC Robert E. Greene of the Virginia National Guard spearheaded the event with his leadership and sponsorship of the event. Without his influence, the competition would not have been as successful.

All athletes that competed did well and provided a glimpse into what the fall holds in store for football fans. The event was not only a showcase of strength but also sportsmanship as athletes from both schools cheered each other as they competed to complete each challenge.

After two successful seasons, the Drifters look forward to enhancing the event next year, with the possibility of adding an open division for the public to compete.
