Regina Hackney and Donald Bigham competed at the NAPF North American Championships on August 15-19 in the US Virgin Islands and both performed very well! Regina, who competed in the RAW as well as the equipped, M4 age class, won gold in both divisions. Donny destroyed the field in both the open and M1 age divisions with a huge total of 690 kg/ 1521 lbs in the 83 kg class! Outstanding Job!
We also had a South Carolinian travel to compete in VA on 8/13 at the 3rd Annual NoVa Open. Jordan Lane lifted in both the Open and Junior divisions (74 kg weight class), winning both convincingly! Jordan also broke the bench, deadlift and total records in the RAW, junior division as well as the open total record with a final tally of 550 Kg. Fantastic!
We have another judge in South Carolina! Jeff Bigham completed his judges certification exam at the Palmetto Powerlifting Open and passed with flying colors! Congratulations! Please let me know if you are interested in giving back to the sport and take the next step by becoming a SC state judge. You only need 1 year of experience under the USA Powerlifting umbrella.
The Fall Festival of Power is full. Our next couple of meets will be the South Carolina State Championship in January and then the Battle on the Border will be in April. We are now taking entry forms for these two meets. Please do not wait too long to get your entry form in. We will begin updating rosters as entry forms begin rolling in.
