PostSubject: Cool story from the UPA meet   Sun Jul 21, 2013 12:45 pm

Janis and I were sitting around and talking between the squat and bench when we were approached by a mom and dad and their daughter. She's a junior in high school, and they asked us if we were on the Iowa powerlifting team. They said that she enjoys competing (she's competing today) and wants to someday go to Iowa and be on the powerlifting team. They were looking for our shirts at the university apparel store and couldn't find them.

Anyway, I thought the regulars might enjoy hearing this. The first two years haven't always been easy, but I'm proud of what we've accomplished, and it's great to hear that incoming students are excited about being on a powerlifting team. I will be moving away after this year, but I will always be around to "help" with the club (however I can), because I want to see our club continue to get people involved in the sport.

Thats awesome to hear. Because everyone on the team was so welcoming I picked up a sport that I otherwise wouldn't have. I hope this team continues to grow with the same atmosphere.
