Kalie Freiberg, an outstanding OCHS student and athlete, will be featured on “Friday Night Heroes” Feb. 12, 2021, on Fox Channel 6 at 9 p.m. for her powerlifting achievements.
A former gymnast with a passion for health and fitness, Freiberg will have a three-lift total on Feb. 12, 2021, for bench press, squat, and deadlift of more than 600 pounds when she competes to qualify for the national competition. She is in the 123-pound weight class.
“Her attention to detail in her preparation, work ethic, and her enthusiasm for the sport are a few of the winning characteristics about Kalie,” said head powerlifting coach, Mr. Dean Tutas. “She is really strong as well, which contributes to her powerlifting success.”
