The Comanche boys’ powerlifting team will send four seniors to compete in the regional meet in West on Saturday, Mar. 9.

To advance to regionals these lifters had to place top twelve in their region. To advance on to state each lifter must place first or second at the regional meet or acquire a predetermined qualifying total.

Senior Jack Northridge qualified for regionals in the 220 lb weight class; he is currently sitting in third place in the region with a total of 1330 pounds.

“I hope that I can get the [predetermined] state qualifying total of 1450,” Northridge said. “I would like to hit that total, so that I know I would be assured a spot at the state meet.”

Senior Zach Foster will be advancing in the 165 lb weight class, he is currently sitting in tenth place in the region with a total of 1100 pounds.

“This is my first year to compete in powerlifting, it has been a great year,” Foster said. “I would love to go to state on my first try.”

Kade Mercer will be returning to the regional meet for the third consecutive year in hopes of qualifying for state in the 181 lb weight class. Mercer is currently sitting in second place in the region with a total of 1260 pounds.

“My plan is to hold on to second place and advance to state,” Mercer said. “I would like to make the most of my last guaranteed meet.”

Kendel Beck is currently the top lifter in the region with 1650 lbs in the 275 lb weight class. This is Beck’s second time to compete at this level of competition.

“If all goes to plan, I should advance to the state meet,” Beck said. “I plan on making it and winning the whole thing.”
