These were all UPA National records for his age/weigh class. Way to represent Team Wolverine Powerlifting.

I traveled to Las Vegas from Oct 27-29th, for the 2012 100% RAW Powerlifting World Championships to coach Cole Hale. There were 12 different countries and over 200 lifters competing over the 3 day event. Cole missed weight for the 220# class(222)and had to bump up to the 242# class.Cole only got his opener on squats but came back with PR's on the bench and deadlift for a come behind victory in the military,police,and fire class and is now a world champion.Cole had a bench of 308 and a 525 pound deadlift.

On July 14 and 15th,2012 Team Wolverine traveled to Des Moines,Ia to compete in the 2012 NASA Grand Nationals. We were lucky enough to have the Grand Nationals being held in Des Moines this year. We had a full team rooster of 10 lifters and set several more Iowa records. Overall we placed 1st in the team event besting several very good teams.Once again thanks to NASA.

On April 21, 2012 Team Wolverine competed at the N.A.S.A. State of Iowa Championships in Des Moines,Ia. This was the first time I had been involved in the N.A.S.A federation and I was very impressed with this event. Meet director Rich Peters,the loaders/spotters, and judges did a fantastic job. I thought it was one of the best meets we have ever been involved in.We had 9 lifters competing for the team at this event and came away with another 1st place finish as a team.There were several great teams competing and they all displayed fine lifting. I want to thank Rich Peters for doing such a great job at the meet. Team Wolverine will continue to support N.A.S.A in the future. It was nice to be at a meet where there was a big family feeling from all the lifters.

Team Wolverine made a great showing at the 2011 Omaha Open with many new PR's set for the team.We continue to train and lift very hard to make these PR's fall. In Jan of 2012 we lifted in the USAPL meet in Lincoln, Ne and placed 2nd as a team. Next up for us is the NASA event in Des Moines on April 21st, 2012.

Happy to announce that Team Wolverine won the high school team event at both the Omaha Open in Nov of 2010 and the AAU meet in Orchard,Ne in April of 2011. As a team we were a perfect 72 for 72 at the Omaha Open.Most recently we crowned 2 state of Iowa champs at the Mid-West PL Championships in Council Bluffs,Ia. Both the winners are new state record holders in 100% RAW powerlifting
