Powerlifting coach Tim Pope said he has high expectations for the upcoming year.

“We had a very solid year last year,” Coach Pope said. “I expect the ones who went to regionals last year to go to state or advance.”

Returning state champ sophomore Maddie Lopez said she is pretty confident about the upcoming season.

“I think and hope that I will make it to state again,” Lopez said. “There were a lot of upperclassmen competing when I was a freshman, and I think they graduated.”

Sophomore Chase Stafford said state is his goal.

“I hopefully will go farther than last year,” Stafford said. “I made it to regionals but that was where I got hurt.”

The last day to sign up for powerlifting is Jan. 28.
