I remember a guy who cleaned 240 and he was only 175 lbs. Report Reply 0 Vote up Vote down Austin · 387 weeks ago That record is 305. Report Reply +7 Vote up Vote down Proud of Crusaders · 387 weeks ago What an achievement for these students in WHS’s first year of competition as a team! So proud of these Crusaders and coaches Katie Hollas and Joey Weissinger. I hope this is an activity that WHS stays competitive at for many years to come.

Need to have more coverage of all these team so disappointing of no knowledge. Coming to be more area’s for our kids to find their way to competition other than football and basketball. Is there a soccer ball? boys volley ball?

I was accused the other day or writing only stories involving my kids. Report Reply +2 Vote up Vote down LittleOne · 387 weeks ago I wouldn’t worry about the jealous people. This is your web. You write a lot on a lot of things and people. I bet the team is happy about it as well as your son should be wrote about too. So the heck with the accuser/accuser’s and write. All these kids deserve to be recognized for attempting any kind of sport. Report Reply +2 Vote up Vote down LittleOne · 387 weeks ago Mercy didn’t know a congratulation gets thumbs down.

Of those 10, none had a better state meet than Lloyd.Â Lloyd bested 23 other powerlifters to finish first in the 220 pound weight division. Not only that but he was first place in two categories and had the best accumulative weight lifting score than anyone at the powerlifting meet.Not bad for someone who was lifting competitively for the first time in his career. Up until Saturday, Lloyd had been nursing a shoulder injury.In powerlifting there are three categories: parallel squat, bench press and hang/power clean. Here were Lloyd’s individual accomplishments:â€¢He squatted 465 pounds. His bench was far superior than anyone else at the meet. The second place finisher Danathan Parks of Abilene benched 400 pounds.â€¢He benched 285 pounds, placing him fifth in his weight category.â€¢He cleaned 340 pounds which tied him with Zac Heiman of Chapman. However, because Lloyd was smaller by weight he won the clean event on the tiebreaker. Also, 340 pounds is a new state record in that category. The previous record was 335 by Austin Hamm of Spring Hill in 2008.For the day, Lloyd would lift a combined 1,090 pounds, besting everybody in all weight classes. Bret Fritz of Basehor Linwood at heavyweight lifted 1,075.Devin McCue, at 148, also received a medal, finishing tied for second in the bench. He benched 230 pounds, losing only to Grady Ware of Clay Center who benched 245.McCue finished just five pounds from medalling finishing third overall.Andrew Horn at 132 pounds also finished fourth overall and Alyssa Gandy placed fourth in the 180 pound category for the girls.The powerlifting team was formed this winter by Katie Hollas. The team competed in two other powerlifting meets during the season before going to Abilene Saturday.Individual Wellington scores: Jacob Johnson13th148245195230670 William Staley16th198350210225785 Class 4A Team scoring:Boys: Basehor Linwood 76, Buhler 53, Clearwater 44, Chapman 39, Abilene 23, Clay Center 23, Tonganoxie 23, Royal Valley 22, DeSoto 20, Maize South 16, Wellington 16, Paola 15, Pratt 13, Wamego 10, Eudora 4, Augusta 2, Larned 2, McPherson 2, Circle 0, Field Kindley 0, Smoky Valley 0.Girls: Basehor Linwood 116, Royal Valley 48, DeSoto 32, Tonganoxie 23, Pratt 18, McPherson 16, Larned 12, Clearwater 10, Eudora 8, Abilene 5, Circle 5, Wellington 5, Clay Center 4, Paola 4, Wamego 3, Field Kindley 1, Augusta 0, Chapman 0.In this photo, Austin Lloyd gathers a crowd around him in the clean lift as he gets a state record with a 340 pound lift.
