Six Linacre Ladies that Lift, in bodyweight categories ranging from under 50.5kg to over 90kg, competed at the British Drug Free Powerlifting Association (BDFPA) Southern Counties / East Midlands Championships on Saturday.  

Four members, including Catherine Walter, Ellie Ott, and Isabel Stoppani de Berrié, achieved qualifying weights on all individual lifts and on the total of the three lifts, which means that they can compete in the Single Lift and Full Power National Championships; Emma-Ben Lewis achieved a qualifying weight in the squat, and so can go forward to the National Single Lift Championship.  Kat Glover, who has only begun lifting recently, achieved a personal best.

A good time was had by all, including the two Ladies who were competing for the first time. Congratulations to all involved!
