Widefield High School was named one of four inaugural Strength of America award recipients by the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.

The award recognizes Widefield to represent the gold standard in strength and conditioning programs.

The program was measured in four major categories: supervision, education, program and facilities. Selected from hundreds of eligible schools, Widefield will be honored July 16 during the NSCA’s National Conference Awards Banquet at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla.
