Powerlifters Persevere through Polar Plunge
February 13, 2023
The annual Polar Plunge took place on Saturday, Feb. 11 — allowing many plungers from different organizations to plunge into ice-cold Wisconsin winter water.
The Polar Plunge is not only a relaxing ice bath; it is a fundraiser for various teams and activities. The funds generated during the event go into supporting the Special Olympics of Wisconsin.
Senior Eion Hinkle helped organize and raise money for the polar plunge. He expressed gratitude in support of a worthy cause and toward his donors.
In this event, there were a total of seven powerlifters who plunged, including the coach, Joe Lewis, a current 6th-grade social studies teacher. The athlete names are as follows:
Leo DeLeon Tye Pokorny
Marissa Derouso Adie Paulson
Rylee Ehlke Kacie Stamm
Eion Hinkle Carter Zoz
