The Battle on the Border Roster is up and
ready to view! USAPL powerlifting in Georgia and the
Carolinas has exploded in the last few years. The SC
State meet has filled up with still 4 weeks to go, North
Carolina's Fall Festival of Power had over 90 lifters and
the Georgia & Southern States meet was massive with 130+
lifters and filled up within a few days.
The Battle on the Border was full before
Valentine's Day last year and we are currently filling up
faster this year. Do NOT be left behind for this huge
event! Send in your entry forms in sooner than later.
I update the roster daily as the forms come in, but remember
that once I have number 100 in my hand, we are done.
The entry form for the Battle on the Border VIII is up on
the site and ready to be downloaded. Last year, entry
forms began coming in this month, so be sure to get your
forms in early. Remember that we are only taking
the first 100 lifters registered!
Battle on the Border is moving to North Carolina in
2014! The Lincoln Charter School in Denver, NC will be
hosting the Battle on the Border for next year.
The location is just north of Charlotte, NC and is a
convenient location for lifters from Georgia as well as
North and South Carolina. The school has a fantastic
facility with two levels of seating and a warm up area that
rivals what we were able to provide in Fort Mill.
Look for entry forms to be up and ready to download in
the near future.
USAPL Battle on the Border VII was a tremendous
success with over 100 lifters competing at a very high level.
South Carolina came out and won the Battle on
the Border plaque for the first time in three years.
This contest has become very competitive with Georgia, North
and South Carolina trading off wins over the last few
contests. Much thanks goes out to everyone who
participated in this event with tons of appreciation going
out to the many people who
volunteered their time and energy to help put this
meet on and make it a success. The spotters and
loaders once again worked tirelessly and there was not a
single lifter injured. Great job! I want to thank
the score table staff for keeping the meet running well
and organized. The State and National
judges that we had were once again fair and consistent.
Ledford with Quest Nutrition and Ken Anderson with
Anderson Powerlifting were once again very
generous with providing gift certificates for some of
our best lifter awards. Tom Simon with West Cary
Barbell has also been incredibly generous over the last
several years in providing equipment for our best
lifters as well as warm up equipment and sound system to
help run the meet.
The results are up and ready to view and the
TOP 10 list has been
updated. We had several lifters blow open the
doors to this list, once again proving that the level of
competition continues to get better every year!
The gallery will be updated within a day or two. If there are
any pictures that were taken from the meet and you would like to
add them to the site, please email them to me at
coming and competing at this year's event.
Look for information on the next Battle in the upcoming
weeks. It will be held on March 22, 2014.
