State champs! LOHS Men's Powerlifting wins title

Make room in the trophy case, Lake Orion High School has another state championship team.

The men’s powerlifting team won its fourth state title in program history on March 9, edging Ionia for the MHSPLA State Powerlifting Championship.

The LOHs women's team came through with a strong fourth-place finish.

There were approximately 100 schools in the state of Michigan represented by over 900 lifters between the men's and women's championships. LOHS ended up with multiple medalists (who finished in top 10 of their weight class.)

The teams also did well as the JV men’s team finished in seventh place and the JV women's team finished in third place.
