For the first time in the history of the Windermere Prep Weightlifting team, the Lakers are sending a lifter to the State Meet!

Evan Anderson, who competed in the 238lb class, dominated all season long, finishing in first place in every regular-season meet. He continued that dominance into the district meet, beating out lifters from Bishop Moore, The First Academy, and Orangewood Christian.

At the Regional meet, Evan would face off against lifters from the above-listed schools, as well as lifters from another district, consisting of schools such as Frostproof High School, Lake Wales, Avon Park, and Mulberry high school. Evan posted a 300lb bench press followed by a 270lb clean and jerk, which solidified him as regional champion and secured his place at the state meet.

Evan will compete against lifters across the state of Florida on Friday, April 15.
