The Sanborn Central Powerlifting Team went to their first meet of the season last Saturday at Sioux Falls O’Gorman.

Approximately 200 lifters from around the state participated in 16 different weight classes for high school boys and girls. Sanborn Central had seven participants.

Lifters are given three opportunities to lift in each category (squat, bench and deadlift), with their max lift being recorded. The combined amount lifted between the three lifts gives the total and is used for placing in the boy’s division. Coefficient is the total amount lifted divided by the lifter’s weight and is used for placing in the girl’s division.
