Madison County High School senior, Zack Sprenkle broke the schools’ clean and jerk record in weightlifting at the Fort White High School invitational on March 13. Sprenkle broke the 325-pound record by five pounds. Sprenkle has been trying to break the record since last year to outdo his brother. Sprenkle shared the record of 325 pounds with his brother, Eli and friend, Brandon Crawford. “When I broke it, I felt really good that I had accomplished a huge goal for me,” said Sprenkle. He also recently found out that he broke the school’s competition bench press record of 405 pounds last year with 450 pounds. “I would like to thank God first off,” said Sprenkle. “He’s the one who gave me the ability that I have. I also want to thank my family, friends and coaches for supporting me and pushing me to be the absolute best I can be.” Sprenkle will be competing in the regional weightlifting competition on Tuesday, March 31, at Maclay High School in Tallahassee with six of the MCHS weightlifting team. “Zack is a great young man,” said Coach James Ertzberger. “I am very proud of his accomplishments thus far. He is one of the hardest working players I have ever had the privilege of coaching. All of his hard work and dedication has paid off with his results.” Sprenkle plans to win the weightlifting State Championship to cap off his senior year and after graduation he plans to attend North Florida Community College and transfer to University of North Carolina to study physical therapy.
