Coach Scott Carroll, athletic director at Cleveland Middle School, won his age group at the United States Power Lifting Association Tennessee State Championship March 30. Carroll competed in the squat, bench press and the dead lift. The event is sponsored each year as a fundraiser for Special Olympics and is a qualifying meet for the USAPL national championships in Texas. Coach Carroll said this was a great experience and a great way to stay active. He credited his lifting success to his coach, Maurice Saliba. “Without Maurice I could not have done this. We have also decided to host our own powerlifting competition in the near future, focusing on high school lifters, as well as open lifters. It is great competition to show off all the hard work you put in in the weight room.” Men and women lifters from four states competed in the event. The lifters included the Virginia Military Institute team as well as some Special Olympians. The championship saw a few national records set, including a 750-pound squat. “I hope my competing will encourage my school’s athletes that lifting can be a lifetime sport,” said Carroll.
