Peterborough ON – Fleming Knights Powerlifting started in their new season with another successful competition earning the title of “Strongest School” at the fall 2019 Sheridan College competition.
Starting a new season with almost a new roster of athletes, the powerlifting team is off to a strong start following a highly successful previous year winning the title of “Strongest School” at both the Sheridan College fall competition and Seneca College winter competition in the 2018-2019 season.
With a smaller roster of 11 athletes, eight of which are rookies, the Knights powerlifting team continued its success. In addition to being awarded Strongest School, the Knights received individual awards. Stephen Kim was awarded 2nd Overall Male Lifter, Katelyn Schlenker was awarded 3rd Overall Female Lifter, Peter Rideout earned the award for Best Bench, and Shane Dyer received the Judges Choice Award.
“What a great bond!” Said head coach Raymond D’Almeida. “It showed when each athlete was on the platform as all teammates motivated each other. As a coach, I cannot express how happy I am with this team as they are a cohesive unit with similar goals and makes me excited to see them achieve great success in this sport.”
The Knights look forward to February 9 when the Powerlifting team travels to Seneca College in Markham for their next competition.
