The really hard work for Paradise senior Mikeala Beck came Friday before the Region 6 Division III girls powerlifting meet.

“I had problems making my weight,” Beck explained. “I qualified for the 123 and 132. I declared 123 and was over Friday. I ran in a sauna suit Friday for a couple of hours to make weight.”

Beck won the 123-pound class with 675 pounds to earn a spot at the state meet for a second straight year.

“It’s one of my favorite high school memories. It’s an awesome experience,” Beck said about a repeat trip to state.

Beck recorded a squat of 245 pounds. She then finished with a bench press of 120. On deadlift, she pulled a class-best 310.

“Deadlift is definitely my favorite,” she said. “I tried to break the regional record of 330.”
