On Tuesday, February 19th, 2013, Nebo School District held a Powerlifting Competition. The event took place at Diamond Fork Junior High School and was a fun-filled, challenging event for the competitors!

Participation is open to all junior high students in the district. There are usually 6 events, most of which are lifts, but there are also a couple of non-lifting events (such as medicine ball throw, vertical jump, sled pull, or shuttle run. There are several weight divisions and students compete against those in their same weight class.

Participants from Payson Junior High School included Bryson Tanner, Wyatt Johnson, Steven VanMoos, Matt Makin, Jason Broadhead, and Levi John. Two of these students medaled in the competition: Wyatt Johnson took first place in his division, and Bryson Tanner placed second in his division!

Congratulations to these students and to all of the participants for your hard work!
