Giving it the old heave, ho
River Falls High School senior Brian Miller received the "Best Lifter" award at the Elk Mound, Minn., regional powerlifting meet in February.
The best lifter award is given after a series of calculations to determine the person who lifted the most in comparison to his or her body weight.
This was the first time a River Falls Powerlifter has received such a recognition.
A number of other River Falls male and female students qualified to compete in the March 11-12 state contest in Racine. Look for those results in the March 23 print issue of the Journal: Karina Frisbie, Lizzy Oberlin, Elly Bjork, Anna Cernohaus, Emma Marietta, Kassidy Snell, Alana Fesser, Abby Bartch, Coryn Davidson, Cora Bibeau, Hailee Markey, Max Mason, Cole Kaiser, Adrian Herbst, Jerric Blair, Brian Miller, Carter Schlee, Andre Dusek and Eli Froemming.
