For the second year in a row, the Dartmouth Powerlifting Club had lifters qualify for Collegiate Nationals. This year, Powerlifting Collegiate Nationals 2017 was held on April 7-9th in San Antonio, Texas. This event was hosted by University of Texas at San Antonio and had over 700 lifters from over 30 colleges and universities. Dartmouth's travel team consisted of four competitors: Ja'laquan Mitchell '19, Samuel Kim '18, Ivan Carrier '18, and Yesenia Mejia '18. Ivan Carrier made it to the podium, placing 5th in his weight class. Ivan and Yesenia accrued points for the team; lifters who place top ten gain points for their team. Overall, everyone set personal records despite being such a young team.
