The IronCat takes each lifter’s total in the deadlift, the bench press, and the squat, then adds the three totals. The 11 highest totals count towards the team score.
Trigg County won the first two IronCat titles in 1994 and 1995 and have since won two of the last three titles. Last year, Trigg edged Madisonville by 175 pounds.
Among the Trigg lifters who could compete for an individual title this year are Devin Herndon, who finished second in the bench press (340 pounds); Henry Wharton, who was fifth in the squat (425 pounds); and Montrell Humphries, who was fifth in the dead lift (550 pounds).
The IronCat serves as a precursor for the State Powerlifting Meet that will be held March 17.
