Clinton High School’s boys powerlifting advanced to the MHSAA Class 6A State Championship yet again. The team finished in a tie for 17th-place, but Head Coach Markevius Hoskins says he was pleased with the team’s progress throughout the year.

“We improved a lot from last year to this year,” Hoskins stated. “We had a lot of first-year guys on the team that did really well this season.”

“The returners from last season also improved their strength tremendously.”

Three Arrows qualified for the State Championship. Junior Khai Truong, sophomore Travari Dowdy and senior Elliott Denson each earned their spots in the finale after high finishes at the North State Championship.

Truong qualified after finishing as the North State runner-up in his weight class and fourth overall.


Dowdy qualified after finishing fourth in his weight class at the North State Championship and sixth overall.

Denson – who is one of four seniors on the team – had a solid end to his high school career. He won the North State Championship in his weight class and was the lone Arrow to score at the State Championship meet. He finished in fourth in his weight class.
