COLFAX — The sport of powerlifting has left a pair of Colfax High School students ready to take on the world.

Literally.

Michaela Liebfried and Spencer Herrick, who will both be seniors for the 2017-2018 school year, will compete in two separate multi-national tournaments in Orlando this summer.

Leibfried is lifting in the 15th Annual North American Powerlifting Federation Championships and Pan-American Championships held in Orlando, Florida, July 3-8. Herrick will attend the International Powerlifting Federation’s World Sub-Junior and Junior Powerlifting Championships, also in Orlando, August 27 through September 3.
