“Lilly is a joy to have in the weight room. She always shows up with a positive attitude and a willingness to work hard. She is consistently trying to improve herself and working to reach her goals. She gets excited about new challenges and works to not only master them but to set a new personal record. We look forward to watching Lilly grow and shatter more records throughout middle school and into high school.”
