KAMUELA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Parker School’s powerlifting team should be nothing but proud of what they have accomplished in the Hawaii Island World Association of Bench Presser’s and Dead Lifter’s competition, which was held recently in Hilo.

The Bulls took first place in the tournament, and also managed to set two individual state records.

Senior Matt Bal and Junior Micah Yamanaka both set the WABDL state records in their division and weight class in the deadlift.

“We did very well this year and hope to keep all of the returning student lifters for next year.

Two state records in our second year is quite an accomplishment and we are hoping to travel to Las Vegas for the World Championship in November,” says Shellie Note-Gressard, Dean of Educational Services at Parker School and powerlifting coach.
