WM powerlifting heads to state finals
The West Monroe girls and boys powerlifting teams will throw their hats into the ring for a state championship bid on Saturday.
The LHSAA Powerlifting 5A championships will be held at 9 a.m. at Rapides Coliseum in Alexandria.
The Rebels are led by seniors John Bailey Gullatt, Jacob Corrent and Justin Chelette. Sophomore Zach Murphy has also shown up big and won individual honors throughout the year.
“The big thing is our senior leadership,” West Monroe coach Todd Garvin said. “They are always pushing our young guys to get better.”
The Rebels are going for a third straight National and Louisiana state team championship.
“Our guys set goals and work hard to attain them,” Garvin said. “It is a credit to (football strength coach Casey) Sanders and the program he runs in the summer and our guys carry that over.”
