Eleven C.H.S. football players traveled to Hilldale High School to compete in the Regional/Area Power Lifting Meet Friday March 5, 2004. All of the young men showed improvement by lifting more total weight than the last meet at Victory Christian School.

Ricky Morgan placed 3rd in the 198lb weight class with a bench of 235, dead lift of 445, and a squat of 390 to total 1,070 pounds. Brad Williamson placed 5th in the 123lb weight class with a bench of 160, dead lift of 275, and a squat of 195 for a total of 630 pounds. Boone Upky placed 5th in the Heavyweight class with a bench of 295, dead lift of 460, and a squat of 435 for a total of 1,190 pounds. Boone benched 305lbs. but racked the weight before the judge told him to which disqualified that great lift.

Ricky, Brad, and Boone all qualified to compete next weekend at the State Power Lifting Meet to be held at Norman North High School Saturday March 13th. Nick Rabbit, Trevor Dawson, and Andrew Peardon all placed 6th, and they may receive an at large bid to compete at state.

The lifters competed very hard and all of Collinsville should be proud of their success. -- Coach Slagle
