Photo by Shannon Morrow Girls finish league games Shannon Morrow Sports Editor sports@plu The Chester High School girls' soccer team finished its regular season with two shutouts against Quincy and Portola last week, giv- ing the Volcanoes a 7-0-1 league rec0rd. Chester defeated Portola 2-0, Oct. 15, and beat Quincy 5-0, Oct. 13. "The score does not re- flect how intense and physi- cal the match was," said Chester coach Eric O'Kelley. "Portola came out to make a statement. They were focused, physical and were playing with a lot of intensity." Chester scored the first goal late in the first half with a beautiful 20-yard shot by Miranda Lemons. The score remained 14) for almost the remainder of the game, until Shannon O'Kelley delivered an insur- ance goal in the final few minutes with a short-range shot that was highly con- tested by Portola players. "The Chester team showed resilience and the mental ability to meet a tough challenge and find a way to win," said O'Kelley. "Once again, our defense was solidand recorded their third straight shutout." Two nights earlier, Chester dismantled Quincy 5-0. McKenna Taylor scored four goals and Allison Scott scored one. This season, the Volca- noes have totaled 33 goals while conceding just four. Melissa Klundby succeeded at 315 pounds in the dead lift, setting a new world record in her weight class for raw powerlifting. Photo submitted Records set in powerlifting Memorial tournament debuts in Portola One year ago, 24-year-old Billy Funk was preparing for his first powerlifting competition with the Ameri- can Powerlifting Associa- tion. However, he never got the chance to compete. He was tragically killed in a car wreck Oct. 31, 2009, two weeks before his meet. Billy was raised in Portola, so it was only fitting that Portola's first ever power- lifting competition, sanc- tioned by the APA, was held in an outdoor venue and named in his honor. On Saturday, Oct. 9, Twen- ty athletes came from throughout California and as far away as Washington to compete. They were greet- ed by a large billboard on Highway 70 in Portola at the Healthy Bodies Fitness gym. Staged directly behind Healthy Bodies, spectators nearly filled a 2,400-square- foot tent set right off the golf course of the adjacent Chalet View Lodge. This is where four APA world records wer e broken, as well as a host of California state records, to the roar of spec- tators and ,competitors. The Billy Funk Memorial opening ceremonies started with promoter Brad Loomis giving a touching dedication to his friend and training partner. Father Renier Siva of Holy Family Parrish said a blessing right before Kelli Prichard and her brother Randy performed a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem. Then it was time for the lifting. In a raw competition, ex- pensive lifting shirts and squat suits that assist the lifter are not permitted. On- ly a weight belt, knee wraps, wrist wraps and chalk are allowed. There were seven first- time competitors at the Billy Funk Memorial. First timer Andrea Murana of Portola had the difficult task of starting the competition in the squat. In the squat, each athlete must squat down until the top of the hip and the knee are parallel. Two out of three judges must give the white flag in order for the lift to count. Murana was successful with a squat of 95 pounds.
