12 compete to be Strong Husker

The competition was fierce at the fourth bi-annual Strong Husker Competition, but determination and mutual encouragement among the participants were the real reason to stick around.

Four women and eight men competed Sunday and spent their day lifting, pulling, carrying and cheering.

“Basically, I just wanted to prove that just because I’m a girl doesn’t mean that I’m not strong and I can’t do anything,” competitor Lauren Geiger said.
