Sophomore @__abbysharp__ (132# class) and freshman @justin__sivilla (148# class) both went 9 for 9 at the NE High School State Powerlifting Meet yesterday. Abby finished her day with a 215# deadlift (PR), and Justin finished his with a 330# deadlift (PR). Abby took home the silver in the 132# class. The meet does not differentiate between raw and equipped (a discussion for another day), so it is worth noting that the gold medalist lifted equipped while Abby (and Justin) both lift raw. #PR #startingstrength #hookgripdeadlift #USAWyouthnationals2016heretheycome @startingstrength
