Lawson Competes in World Powerlifting Championship
September 21, 2023
Cedar Creek senior Lawson Lillo represented not only his school but his country as he competed in the IPF Sub-Junior World Championships in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. He earned the silver medal in the bench press with a lift of 380.36 pounds and a bronze medal with a lift of 479.59 pounds in the deadlift. He also finished fourth in the squad with a mark of 518.175 pounds. Lillo owns the Louisiana state record in the bench press in the 148-pound weight class set last spring during a regional meet at Calvary Baptist. He will have an opportunity this coming spring to lead the Cougars powerlifting team as they bid to win a state title, something they fell just short of last year.
