AUGUSTINE EXCELS POWERLIFTING MEET

The 2021 World Powerlifting Championships were held in the York Barbell/Weightlifting Hall of Fame. Augustine, a senior at North Star High School, not only took the championship, but also set a new Pennsylvania state record for the squat lift at 243 pounds and set a new RAW world record for the female bench press 148-pound division. When the meet was finished, she had won the 148-pound teen event, open women's event and the pound-for-pound strongest female lifter under 200 pounds, earning her the women’s lightweight division world championship. Also, on Oct. 8, she was crowned the 2021 North Star homecoming queen.
