NPHS had ten athletes compete in the All Class State RAW Powerlifting Meet on February 1st. Creighton Prep High School hosted the meet that included 230 participants. The athletes competed by weight class and completed the bench press, squat and deadlift. Athletes are given three attempts to lifts as much weight as they can in each lift. The best attempt at each lift is then added together to figure the athletes total pounds lifted. Athletes then earn individual medals and team points based off of their total pounds lifted.
These Bulldogs placed in the top five overall for their respective weight classes:
Name: Wt. Class Squat Bench Deadlift Total lbs Place
Matt Musselman 242 440 240 405 1085 4th
Nicholas Spradlin 275 365 245 495 1105 5th
Austin Junker 275 365 265 495 1125 3rd
Dalton Lunkwitz HWT 415 275 475 1165 5th
Other Bulldog lifters that participated:
David Rinke, Will Kramer, Tanner Brittenham, Peyton Dimmit, Zach Alexander and Jackson Carter.
It is exciting to see the continued strength gains that athletes are making in our program. We had a number of athletes break personal records for their best attempts.
A huge benefit to attending these meets is the opportunity to compete in an event and to also see the strength level of other athletes.
I really appreciate the parental and administrative support to allow us to attend this meet2
