Monsters do exist: Poth powerlifting
By Erin Chacon
The Poth powerlifting team has grown over the years. Everyone has started to work out and prepare themselves for the first meet in January. There have even been some very dedicated members who haven’t stopped working since last year’s season was over.
There are definitely a few new faces and they are ready to lift this year. The powerlifting team is planning to achieve many goals, not just personally but as a team as well.
Members of the team weighed in on a couple of questions.
