Dec. 6, 2008 Standardsville, VA: JMU Senior Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach, Callye Williams, competed in and won 1st place at the 2008 USA Powerlifting, Virginia State Meet. This was Callye's first ever powerlifting competition. In this meet she broke Virginia State records in all three lifts and the total while lifting raw (no power suit, no knee wraps, no bench shirt). Callye Squatted 325, Bench Pressed 175 and Deadlifted 350 all at a bodyweight of 153. She actually Squatted 350 successfully but was disallowed because she moved her hand on the bar, and she successfully bench pressed 185 but it was disallowed because she racked the bar too quickly.
