Big Spring High School began powerlifting season back in January and the Steers have been crushing the competition. One young man who’s standing out with his exceptional performance is Big Spring High School Senior Justin Ormsby.

Powerlifting is a strength sport that consists of three attempts at maximal weight on three lifts: squat, bench press, and deadlift. According to Assistant Powerlifting Coach Jeff Pannell, there are 12 different weight classes that male athletes can compete in. Ormsby competes in the 132's, which means he competes with male athletes who weigh in between 132 lbs. to 123.5 lbs.

Ormsby stated that he began with the powerlifting team when he was a Freshman, after he had maxed out on squats and realized the strength that he had. With the support of his friends and family, he continued competing with the Steer Powerlifting team.

Last year Ormsby won 1st place in Regional, and went on to place 6th in state. With his highest scored weights at 405 lbs. in squat, 203 lbs. in bench, and 460 lbs. in dead lift, Ormsby was able to miss last week’s competition in Crane in order to take his ACT’s and, according to Coach Pannell, he'll still be able to do fine in the regional rankings.

This year, Ormsby won 1 st during the first two meets of this year at the Big Spring Invitational and in Ft. Stockton. The goal that he's set for himself is to win first place in Regional competition this year and to place higher in the state competition than he had last year.

Even though Ormsby has been excelling with powerlifting, he also excels in the classrooms, and he plans to attend Texas State Technical College for automotive next year.
