Meet the Board
"My name is Justin Rife. I am currently a senior studying Kinesiology. I have been competing in powerlifting meets for almost 8 years and have quite a bit of experience at the local, state, and national levels within the sport. In my free time I like to cook, play video games, learn about random "handyman" skills, and hang out with friends."
"I am a senior studying Computer Engineering and Computer Science and this is my fourth year on the Badger Powerlifting team. I started my journey in powerlifting when I was a junior in high school (because my brother forced me) and I've stuck with it since! Outside of the gym you can catch me hanging out with friends, doing homework , or cooking/eating something. Looking forward to meeting all the new members!"
"I am a senior studying Psychology and Criminal Justice, and I've been powerlifting for a little over three years now. When I joined the team as a Freshman, I had no previous powerlifting experience, but was able to grow within the sport with the help of my fellow team members and coaching staff! Outside of the gym, I love to cook, play Xbox, and watch true crime documentaries."
Fundraising Social Chair
"My name is Sam Cooper. I am a junior studying Computer Engineering and Computer Science. I started lifting at the start of my freshman year and recently started powerlifting over summer break of 2021. When I'm not working out I spend outrageous amounts of time playing video games like rust and drinking equally outrageous amounts of Fairlife Milk."
"My name is Quinn Parker. I'm a junior studying Biochemistry and Mathematics. I have been powerliftng since I was about 11 years old and recently fell back in love with the sport. Outside of school I am usually working in research labs or volunteering at a free clinic. I also enjoy playing spikeball and being silly with my friends."
"I am a second-year Medical student interested in sports medicine, mental health, and pediatric care. I have been powerlifting for about 4 years now and am passionate about making the sport inclusive, competitive, and fun for all. Outside of the gym, you can find me hiking up mountains, cracking dad jokes, playing the piano, or cooking."
