The 2013 USAPL Collegiate National Championships is this weekend and the excitement is building. With classes that can be 40+ competitors deep, large crowds, and ear-piercing cheering, Collegiate Nationals is the most electric powerlifting meet that you are likely to encounter. Teams from around the nation train all year for this weekend, and 2013 looks to be another great event.  Let’s take a look at the local contenders!

Travis Werner wrote in the 2013 Collegiate Nationals Preview, “In just five short years, Boston has exploded onto the collegiate powerlifting scene. With a huge roster and an all-star coaching staff, we are within a few years of the North claiming their first national championship in many years. Led by defending National Champion, Shaina Petit, and top-seeded Emily Leibert at 114, Northeastern has a very good chance of leaving Texas with the coveted team title in 2013.”
