Garret Rymer lifts in weightlifting class.

A meeting for the powerlifters was held on Nov. 6 during seminar.

Coach Randall Rath said about 15 students showed up who were interested in participating. He said there will probably be more students that join later because some students were gone for Musical and Leadership Team that day.

The balance between girls and boys is rather equal, too, with nine boys and six girls who showed up.

Rath said official practices will begin for the team on Nov. 20. The practices will be after school for an hour.

Until then, students planning to power lift or do any sport can attend zero hour at 7 a.m. starting Nov. 13.
