WOLCOTT — To diehard fans, football season is really never over. So to those fanatics, Saturday’s Naugatuck Valley League weightlifting championship at Wolcott High School was a major offseason milestone in preparation for next fall. The insiders knew how the competition would end, though—for the fourth consecutive year, Wolcott easily out-pumped the rest of the league to win the NVL title. Woodland, after holding down the second-place position for most of the day, narrowly lost out to Holy Cross for runner-up and finished third. Woodland football and weightlifting coach Tim Shea wasn’t discouraged, though, as the Hawks met their goal of lifting more than 12,000 pounds at the competition. Their 12,050-pound total was good enough for yet another top-three performance.
