ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Central New York high school students participated in an annual powerlifting competition, held at East Syracuse Minoa High School on Saturday.
For the first time, organizers partnered with Strides of CNY for the competition.
Organizers said they want to give students who don't play winter sports a chance to showcase their strength-building talent.
"They're doing stuff in the off-season that they don't get recognized for, and a lot of kids are towards football and stuff. So, this really gives them an opportunity to show what they're doing in the off-season and give them something to work for every year,” said Theodore Kopytowski, Strides Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
The East Syracuse-Minoa High School Football Club teamed up with the school's Athletic Strength Club to host the event, which began back in 2007.
