LEXINGTON, Neb. (KNOP) - NPHS had seven athletes compete in the Lexington Powerlifting meet on Saturday, December 7th. Athletes competed by weight class and complete the bench press, squat, and deadlift. Athletes are given three attempts to lift as much weight as they can in each lift. The best attempt at each lift is then added together to figure the athlete’s total pounds lifted. Athletes then earn individual medals and team points based off of their total pounds lifted.

Team totals – The Bulldogs finished in 2nd place as a team.
“I was really pleased with our efforts and that our athletes competed well. Powerlifting is a fun sport and allows athletes an opportunity to work toward personal best attempts, while also competing against other athletes,” said coach Todd Rice.
The Bulldogs will again compete on February 1st at Omaha Creighton Prep. Prep will host the All Class RAW State Powerlifting Championship meet.
“I hope that we can add more athletes to our team and hopefully fill more weight classes for this event. It is exciting to see the continued gains that our athletes are making in our weight program,” Rice said.
