Faurot completes another sweep in tune-up for state

In two powerlifting meets this year, Loren Faurot has simply overpowered the competition.

Six events. Six gold medals.

Competing in the 140-pound division at the WaKeeney Invitational, the Scott Community High School sophomore had a total of 730 pounds in his three lifts - 110 pounds better than his nearest rival.

A fourth place finisher at the Class 4A state powerlifting meet a year ago, Faurot totaled 595 pounds in his three lifts while competing at the 132-pound division.

“He’s worked hard in the weight room and made a lot of progress over the past year,” says strength coach Todd Richardson. “He’s still got room to improve before state.”
