COMMENTS: Third-year varsity lifter … Three-time All-Hernando County weightlifting selection. … Voted 2016’s Hernando County Co-Lifter of the Year with NCT teammate Ashley Gentz … Unanimously voted Lifter of the Year in 2017 … As a sophomore, Traudt alternated between 139 and 154 pounds … Competed in six meets, claiming wins in three events (NCT tri-meet, Lecanto dual and Hernando County Championship)… Placed fourth in Disparti … Placed fifth in District 5 … Led all the county lifters with a 280-pound total at 154. … Sterling junior campaign … Competed in eight meets, claiming a personal record six first-place efforts in Weeki Wachee, Lecanto, Hernando and Citrus dual meets, besides adding regional and state crowns … Nearly etched seven or eight wins, finishing runner-up at Disparti VI, and lost a tie-breaker for first place to finish second at districts … Hoisted a personal-best 160-180—340 total in her first state meet to tie Gentz for the school’s highest-ever total at 139 … Missed over two months of training due to an automible accident prior to senior season in 2016-17 … However, she picked up where she left off with seven wins in seven meets … Tied for the county lead in victories with sophomore Jouie Miller and senior Kaitlyn Pierce … Traudt opened her final campaign with a win versus Lecanto, another in the Hernando tri-meet and at Inverness-Citrus … Rolled the post-season capturing gold at the Hernando County Meet, 1A-10 at Weeki Wachee, 1A-V at Belleview before achieving history in Marion County … Returning to Belleview High, the second-seeded Traudt became the first Hernando County female lift to post back-to-back gold-medal winning seasons with a personal-best 170-180350-pound total … Traudt became the first Hernando County lifter (male or female) to garner back-to-back gold medals for the first time since Hernando High’s Anthony Roberts, who achieved the feat under skipper Bill Browning in 2004-05 … Traudt graduated with 16 individual wins in 21 career meets … Gentz holds the county record for most meet victories in a single season (9) and most career wins (22).

QUOTE: “Sam is probably the most humble lifter I’ve seen … You’d never know she’s a two-time state champion with how she goes about her business … Now, when the singlet goes on, she becomes Super Woman … You’d never know it if you bumped into her in school … After she had the car accident, I was worried about her not lifting. To me, her safety was more important. I told her that she didn’t have to prove anything to anybody and could just help out in weight room if need be. I remember the look she gave me like I was crazy, of course she’d be back … She wasn’t quite ready when the season started and we took things easy … It’s really a heart warming story to see her comeback … What sets Sam apart? She’s slow and steady with the bar; whether its 135 or 195 … She has such a beautiful routine … To me, she’s the epitome of what we’re trying to teach all the other girls … You can not replace a two-time state champion, we only can hope to have more girls. Will I ever coach another state champion? I sure hope so.”

NCT Head Coach Rudy Story

QUOTE: “No one can ever say Sam doesn’t put in the work … She works so hard in the weight room and outside … I think her gymnastic ability from a young age really helped her … After the accident, she came back stronger than ever … Her biggest asset? She’s an all-around good lifter … She has great form with her clean and jerk … And there’s that blood line of competition with he sisters.”

Weeki Wachee’s Annelise Rentas

QUOTE: “When you’re a two-time state champion; she’s done the job … I think her work in her cleans really stand out … See did a phenomenal job of blocking out all the distractions to win again.”

Central’s Chris Sands

QUOTE: “Statistically-speaking, how could anyone else have done more? You can’t take away two gold medals. This is awesome for her.”

She’s super disciplined … She goes by the book; she’s very structured; very fundamentally sound … Even though things didn’t turn out like she would’ve wanted (with a state gold medal), I’m very satisfied for her … Despite injury and adversity she was always picking herself and her teammates up … I love the way she fostered the new girls … They saw the competitiveness.”

QUOTE: “She really improved in one year … Missed weight at states by .2/10ths of a pound … That’s not the way she wanted to go out, but just to make it to states is something … She brought leadership and consistency and experience to a team made up mostly of young lifters this year … Type of person who helped any way she could … We’ll miss her leadership and her willingness to always lend a hand.”

COMMENTS: Elitelevel competitor in track and field and weightlifting … 2016 Class 2A state placer in the shot put in Bradenton and two-time state qualifier … Repeat All-Hernando County weightlifting selection … In 2015-16, she scratched out once as a frosh in nine meets (Citrus) … Claimed three wins (Weeki Wachee and Hernando dual meets and the Hernando County Championship at Weeki Wachee) … Lost a tie-breaker for first place at Lecanto and placed runner-up at 1A-10. … After placing third in regionals, Miller placed seventh in her initial FHSAA State Finals with a personal-best 175-180355 total … There was no hint of a sophomore jinx in 2016-17 … Miller was sensational …Competed in eight meets and won the first seven: Lecanto dual, Hernando and Springstead tri-meets, Citus dual, Hernando County Championship, Class 1A, District 10 Meet and Class 1A, Region V Meet … In her second state final in weightlifting, Fort White sophomore Casey Carter stood tied with Miller with a 420-pound total … Miller had a chance to win but misfired on her final clean and jerk attempt … With both lifters tied, Carter who weighed in 27 pounds less was awarded the precious state gold medal and Miller settled on silver … In the process, Miller’s unbelievable 210-210—420-pound total set three Hernando County records.

QUOTE: “I sit back in awe of Jouie’s season … She’s a special athlete … She’ll go on and do great things and I’ll watch her do it on TV … You don’t see too many like Jouie Miller in 20 years … She hated the fact that she ended up tied for first place … She can’t wait to get back to it … She feels like she’s got some unfinished business.”
