Girls Varsity Powerlifting · Ringing in the New Year, One PR at a Time


  Place Points
East Ridge High School 1st 43
Mount Dora High School 2nd 34

Bells were ringing all afternoon as East Ridge girls lifted their heaviest weights of the season. The Winter break allowed some time for rest and recovery, however some lifters may have rested too much. “Some of these girls, like Deborah (Medina) and Kylee (Nickerson) have been improving their form so they didn’t lose much over break and got PRs today,” explained Coach McCullough. However the break wasn’t good for everyone. A number of girls were unable to get a score at the home of the Hurricanes, expecting to perform at the same level as they did before the interruption in the season. “It’s a learning experience for all of us,” said Coach Mack, as many of the girls call her. The girls have one final regular season meet on Wednesday next week at South Lake High School, where Coach expects the girls to be back on track before heading into district competition.
