Photo Submitted New Trier powerlifters impress at national tournament Submitted by New Trier High School The New Trier Powerlifting team took to the road last weekend, spending Spring Break at the N.A.S.A. Nationals in Oklahoma City. This was the Trevians’ fifth time at the meet, which included teams from Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri and Oklahoma. New Trier was the lone representative from Illinois. Meet Director and founder of the N.A.S.A., Rich Peters, called New Trier “a high character group who always competes hard and represents themselves well.” Competitively, the Trevians had one of their best showings to date. The girls team took fourth place in the Overall Combined division, led by juniors Isabella Mendes, Mara Kapes, and Lauren Russell. The boys team did even better, finishing second in the Overall Combined division, only seven points out of first place. The highlight of the meet came in the Boys Junior- Senior Division, when the Trevians edged out tough competition to take first place. The N.A.S.A. Jr.-Sr. National Champs were led by seniors Russ Sanchez, Konnor Klassen, and Matt George. George brought big points to the team, finishing first in his weight class. Other notable pointwinners were Dara Safe (first place, 148-pound division), Jackson Tucker (first place, 123-pound division), Klassen (second place, 308-plus pound division), and Chamberlain Coffee (third place, 242-pound division). Trevian Powerlifting coach and New Trier’s Staff & Student Wellness Coordinator, Jim Davis, was proud of the way his team competed. “This was an especially fun group who has worked really hard to get where they are. Rich [Peters] runs a great meet and all the teams were competitive,” he said. “Belton [Missouri] is always strong. The Jr.-Sr. group had to have a good day to win and they did. Lots of teachable moments over the weekend, which means as well as they did, the future is even brighter.” The Trevians traveled to St. Viator on Saturday, April 7, for a regional competition, then play host for the Illinois High School Powerlifting Association State Championship on May 5.
