The 2017 USA Powerlifting SC State Championship was once again a huge success despite the bad weather leading into the event. With over 80 lifters competing, we had several State and American records broken. Results have now been posted. Look for State records to be updated in the next few days. Congratulations to all lifters who competed yesterday.
I would personally like to send thanks to all of the volunteers who stepped up and travelled through the tough conditions to help us out. On Friday night, it was looking like we were going to have a pretty tough time of it, but our members came through for us and we had plenty of help to spot, load, judge and run our scorer's table. Thank you so much!
BJ Faas is our new SC State Chair. I have thoroughly enjoyed leading our State over the last 8 years. I would like to think that I helped to better the state of powerlifting in South Carolina and provide young lifters the opportunity to love, experience, share, and compete in our sport of powerlifting. I'm sure that BJ will do a tremendous job moving forward and will continue to develop the growth of powerlifting in our State.
