Day 1 (Friday) – USAPL High School Nationals
Junior Varsity Divisions
We are well underway here at the Killeen Convention Center.
Day 1: Junior Varsity Division.
Taylor LaChapelle (97lb Class) lifted in the junior varsity division. As a freshman, she joined her other teammates (Adams-Frienship) for a chance to win the JV team competition.
Taylor made three strong squats finishing with 132.5kg/292lbs. She was disappointed in her deadlift, but she put up a huge total of 330kg/727lbs. That total should win the varsity division. Did I mention she is only a freshman?
Taylor won the outstanding lifter award for the junior varsity division.
Winning the boys outstanding lifter award was Teddy Gildersleeve (Osceola). Teddy totaled 572.5kg/1,262lbs at a body weight of 67.5kg/148.7lbs.
The boys junior varsity team title went to Woodward Academy. Link to their media page.
