American Powerlifting State Championships in Taylor

The 2007 American Powerlifting Federation Michigan State Championships are scheduled for 10 a.m. March 24 at the Heritage Park Activity Building, 12111 Pardee Road.

The event will feature 50 to 70 lifters – “the strongest men and women in Michigan” – who will compete for trophies in a number of weight classes (148 pounds to super heavyweight) and divisions (from teen-agers to seniors).

Winners will qualify for the national meet.

Spectators are welcome. Admission will be $5 at the door. Last August, about 250 spectators watched the federation’s Detroit Barbell Open at the Heritage Park Activity Building.
