Record Breaking State Powerlifting Champion from St. Mary’s

After five years of powerlifting for St. Mary’s Catholic School, Anna Kata Jackson made her senior year State Powerlifting meet one for the record books…literally.

Not only did she place first in her weight class, but she also broke three state records in the process. Starting with a record-breaking squat (315) and following it up with two-record-breaking deadlifts (325 and 335 – breaking her own record), she broke a state record for total pounds lifted (785).

In addition, this well-rounded student-athlete also received LHSAA Academic All-Composite Honors for her 4.0 GPA.

Teammate Chloe Nash also placed fourth in her weight class at state.
