Boys Varsity Wrestling · Pirate Alumnus Gillis Takes 1st Place


If you visit Devangelo Gillis’ Facebook page, you will see a picture of the Hulk as his cover photo. That picture is very fitting for powerlifter Gillis.

Gillis competed at the 5th Annual Virginia USPA Powerlifting Open June 1st and took 1st place in the Jr 125kg weight class (402 lb bench, 600 lb squat, and 633 lb deadlift).

Congratulations Devangelo! Go Pirates!
