When one thinks of the sport of Powerlifting, do girls come to mind? Well in Big Red Country it should. Once again our girls excelled and this time at State Competition over the weekend in Lake Orion. Coach Mel Tatti and her amazing team of girls took the stage and walked away with much to be appreciated after a long season of a ton of hard work!
In Coach Tatti’s words:
“The Lady Big Red Powerlifters competed at the State Meet on Friday and Saturday at Lake Orion this weekend.
Our JV All State lifters were Abi Pionk, Ceiri Thompson, Frankie Baranowski, Kayla Whiting, Kacey Szczepkowski, Jasmine Mylan, Destinea Williams, Aaliyah Muma, Emily Peyerk, Elli Kretschmer, Tionna Adams, Brianna Collins, and Santia Thomason. Our JV State Champion was Damajiea Smith with an amazing total of 695lbs and she also broke the JV state squat record. Great Job JV Ladies!
Our Varsity All State lifters were Judy Hoang, Jada Adame, Kayley Lambert, Karissa Hinojosa, Jaida Mixon, Olivia Bales, Lyric Monzo, and Keyera Slaughter. We had two Varsity State Champions – Kourtney Thomason and Dayle McKinley. Both girls set new squat records and total records, and Dayle also broke the bench record. Great season Varsity girls!”
Congratulations to all of our Lady Powerlifters!
