Eagles Flex Their Muscles at Powerlifting State Championships


In their first year competing in the IHSPLA Powerlifting State Championships at New Trier High School, the Taft Eagles made their mark. Sophomore Demetri Georgeopoulos is the state powerlifting champion in the 275-pound weight class after posting a 1255-pound total for his bench, squat and deadlift. Junior Piotr Krupa’s 340-pound bench press was the top bench press in the entire competition. Taft Today’s Trevor Fahnstrom gets an inside look at the Eagle’s performance from Saturday.
