Preston Phillips

Chickasha's Preston Phillips competes at powerlifting regionals in Anadarko last week. Phillips is one of seven Chickasha powerlifters to qualify for state.

Seven Chickasha athletes will compete at the State Powerlifting Meet at Norman North on Friday.

The group qualified for state by placing in the top five of their weight class at regionals in Anadarko last week. 

Larry Abram and Trace Brandtley will be lifting at 157-pounds, while Devin Pinkston and Robert Ferguson compete at 168. Preston Phillips and Clayton Mosley will compete in the 220-pound class, and Damon Miller lifts at heavyweight.

All of Chickasha's qualifiers played football last fall. Players often use powerlifting as a way to stay in shape and get stronger in the offseason.
