14 Year Old From Katy, TX Breaks Four Records in First Ever Meet

Sydney Makowski (14 yo, Freshman, Katy, TX) broke four records in her first ever meet.  She competed in the Teen 14-15 division at the USAPL 8th Annual Aggie Showdown on February 23.  She broke the American raw bench press record, along with three Texas state raw records in the bench press, deadlift, and total.

Sydney’s primary sport is basketball, but her strength was noticed during training and she decided to give Powerlifting a try.  Thanks to some very helpful advice from Tiny Meeker, Olivia Harrington (Texas A&M), and Christy Cardella (USAPL TX) she found a meet and entered.  The opportunity to be around other seasoned lifters, and lifting with the strict judging guidelines, was a great learning experience.  She was happy to have success and leave her first meet with some records, and most importantly, the experience of lifting in competition and the itch to continue.  She plans to build on her early success and enter more meets throughout the year.
