The Dupree Powerlifting team, along with their volunteer coach Shannon Hinrichs, recently traveled to Sioux Falls to compete in the O’Gorman Meet. There were over 200 high school students lifting and Dupree brought home two medals.
This is the second year that DHS has had a powerlifting team, and it has grown in size and achievements.
They are very committed to their efforts and lift four to five times a week; even meeting on Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, etc.
Their next meet will be the SD State Powerlifting meet in Sioux Falls on March 9.
The team and their coach greatly appreciate the support they’ve received from friends and family, as well as from the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and Dupree School.
Results are listed as: Name, Weight Division, Placing in Division, Best Squat, Best Bench, Best Deadlift.
