This weekend will be a heavy one!
The Louisiana and Texas (Boys) state championships will be hotly contested.
1. The Texas boys state meet will be held this weekend in Abeline, TX. We look forward to seeing how the lifters finish their season. Here is the link where the results will appear. Good luck guys!
2. Week 10 national and state rankings have been updated. We have a new #1 in the state of Texas…Jaelynn Clark (1,330lbs). She squatted 600lbs (above). This also moves her up to #3 in the nation. We have confirmed that the Top 3 lifters in the country (Lent, LaChapelle, & Clark) will be competing at the USAPL High School Nationals next weekend in Killeen. I can’t wait to be sitting front row (more coming early next week).
3. In the second year as a recognized sport by the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA), the sport of Powerlifting is on the move…Up. As a former lifter and meet director in the LHSPLA, I am proud to see how well the organization is progressing. This years addition to the competition held at West Monroe High School…LIVE STREAMING!
4. Live streaming will be on the network of the National Federation of State High School Associations. Here is the link.
It is a pay-per-view event. $10 for 24 hours; $15 for entire weekend.
5. Guess who was nominated by the LHSPLA to be the “color commentator” for the 3-day event. Me. Yes, I am as surprised as you are! I am very humbled and thankful for this opportunity.
