The third, bi-annual Speed and Strength Training competition is scheduled for Wednesday, March 27 at Nikiski High School, beginning at 6;00 p.m.
The SST competition will feature students from Nikiski, KCHS and Skyview performing in weight training events: clean, snatch and back squat; and in an endurance event titled “good fight, gone bad”. These are part of the overall SST training curriculum used at these area high schools.
The competition is divided by class with a freshman-sophomore division and a junior-senior division.
In October of 2012, the second, bi-annual SST competition included the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, standing long jump, shuttle run and “good fight gone bad’ competition. Nikiski was awarded the traveling, team trophy amassing 224 points, followed by KCHS and Skyview.
