Decatur’s Dillan Brown captured his third straight Region VI Division II title Saturday.
Brown lifted a meet record 1,140 pounds to win the 123-pound class.
“That’s three in a row at regionals,” Brown said. “The next goal is to be a two-time state champion.”
Brown set the total record and the new mark for deadlift with a successful 450-pound effort to close the day.
“That was different than every other final lift because it was my last regional meet,” Brown said. “I left it all on the floor. I wanted my last lift to be a good one.”
Brown squatted 465 and benched 225.
He will joined at state by teammate Nolan Newville, who took second, lifting 950. He squatted 375, benched 215 and deadlifted 360.
