The GHS Ridgerunner Summer Pride weightlifting and exercise program is wrapping up this week after a summer of operation.

GHS football players have been voluntarily reporting to the field house for weightlifting and exercise sessions for most of the summer. GHS coaches have been at the field house on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday to supervise the activities. Varsity troops have been reporting at 6:45 AM on the designated days. Junior high athletes start their sessions at 8:00 AM.

Tuesday morning saw GHS Coaches Warren Brumley and Kenneth Kimmel overseeing the weight room while Coach Ron Culwell led stretching and aerobic exercises out on the turf.

While the football team closes out their Summer Pride program the Lady Red softball team is getting their version started.

Softball players have been reporting to the field house this week at 8:00 AM for sprints and long distance runs. Some of the players hit the weight room as well.
