    Conway Springs will be hosting the annual powerlifting meet March 14. The meet will begin at 9:30 a.m. and is expected to end around 3. Last year, there were 33 schools at this meet, and around the same is expected this year.

According to powerlifting coach Matt Biehler, Conway takes about 24 athletes to most regular meets and about 40 to the preliminaries for state. At the home meet, however, Conway is expected to have about 50 to 55 athletes. This is because there is also a junior division, meaning middle school athletes also have the chance to attend.

“I like lifting,” freshman Cassie Brozovich said. “My favorite part is how it makes me stronger and better with my sports.”

With a men’s division that has been state champions for the past five years and a women’s division scoring in the top three for the past two years, Coach Biehler said he is excited to see how the athletes will compete at the home meet.

“They are working very hard,” he said, “and not only during weight classes, but groups are coming in after school.”

The athletes are also determined to do their best at this meet and have been heavily preparing to do so.

“I’ve been doing a lot of strength training, eating healthy, and running,” senior Michael Ramirez said.

Student helpers are still needed to assist with running the meet. If any students are interested in volunteering, they need to contact Coach Biehler.
