Athlete of the Week: Pineville Girls Powerlifting

By  | 

PINEVILLE (KALB) -- The Lady Rebels Powerlifting team are now back-to-back champs.

Their road to their second title, though, was less than ideal.

"At the beginning of our season we lost our coach, and the equipment was his, so he took it with him," said Brianna Collins, a senior on the team.

That's when Will Cowan, an assistant at the time, stepped into the head coaching role.

"I was just worried about doing whatever I needed for these girls," said Cowan.

For their second consecutive state championship, the Lady Rebels Powerlifting team is your ACA Athlete of the Week.
