Stanley Nowacki, owner of a Depew furniture and upholstery store, brought home a title from the AAU Powerlifting Championships in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., last month.
Nowacki has had a record-setting year in the 181-pound, natural class. His 565-pound deadlift this year set a national record, and he owns state records in the squat, bench and "total" events.
This year Nowacki has taken first place in the UB Open, the Western New York and the New York State powerlifting championships, and the state bench press championship.
