Raising uniform funds a real ‘Challenge’


T.J. Jackson cleans 295 pounds while Mike McNatt spots during the Tabor College football team?s ninth annual Spring Challenge. The fundraising event, held March 26-27, pits the returning Bluejays in a friendly competition against one another in five events: 40-yard dash, 1-mile run, bench press, squat and clean lifts. Jackson?s clean was a personal best, and the senior earned a 20/20 score in the event. He posted an aggregate score of 95 out of 100 possible points. Fellow seniors Kyle Basinger, Seth Mills and Lance Stubbs each met the 20-point benchmark in four events to record aggregate scores in the 90-plus range. Demetrius Cox put up a 60/60 score in the three weightlifting events, but was held out of the running events because of his involvement with the track team. Mario Nava, the "Pride of Peabody," scored 55 points in three events and Hillsboro?s Michael Suderman recorded one of the team?s two 100-point scores. The funds raised will help the team purchase new uniforms.
