The Lee Murray Weight Lifting Championships originated with the GACA when Coach Lee Murray organized coaches in the off-season to help motivate strength programs to compete on a state level.
Weight Lifting is NOT a GHSA sport and the GACA – Lee Murray Weight Lifting Championships are NOT a GHSA sanctioned event and does not require normal GHSA eligibility criteria. The events are insured by the GACA and require that each participating athlete have a current physical on file with the participating school. All rules and competition decisions in the event are final with the GACA and the Event Coordinator…

On behalf of GHSA Executive Director, Dr. Robin Hines:
After today’s meeting with the SMAC, the GHSA has determined that no changes will be made at this time for the 2021-22 SY during GHSA sports/activities. The following guidance is in place for the 2021-22 SY:
> The GHSA request local school/systems use appropriate protocols as outlined by their local DPH.
> The GHSA will respect local school/systems COVID guidance during regular season contest/activities.
> The GHSA staff will require all GHSA events (GHSA playoffs) be free of attendance restrictions during all GHSA playoff events.
> Sport specific, Considerations and Rule Modifications, will be evaluated and adjusted as needed by each sport administrator.
> Our goal continues to be to provide sports and activities for our students with safety being the top priority.
> The SMAC will continue to meet on a regular basis to consider changes in COVID data.
Recommendations and restrictions are fluid and subject to change. Safety must be our top priority.
Thanks for all you and your staff do for the student/athletes in the State of Georgia.
