The Port Allen girls powerlifting team began its quest Saturday for a fifth consecutive state championship in the Kay Fenton Memorial Meet at Episcopal High School.
The Lady Pels competed against teams from all around the state - West Monroe (5A), Chalmette High (5A), Pope John Paul (2A), Zachary High (5A), Slidell High (5A), Walker High (5A), Broadmoor High (5A), and Woodlawn High (5A).
“As a team, I think we did pretty good,” Coach Brian Bizette said. “This year’s team is probably the most talented I’ve coached, but I do think they need more experience. I think we have a pretty good shot at winning the state championship.”
