Williams prepping for national contest

When: Sept 18-18. 

Where: New York. 

What: La Grange bodybuilder Donna Williams is gearing up for a national contest in New York later this month.

Williams, who won the overall and lightweight titles at the Northern Natural meet in Cleveland last fall, has been competing for three years and won several titles including the Kentucky National.

Williams is hoping to qualify for her professional status in New York and said her training has been going well.

“Each show is different so you adjust to that,” Williams said. “I have been doing a lot of cardio so I am sure people have seen me around town a lot.”

Williams, a paramedic with Oldham County EMS, has been able to secure several local sponsors to help defray the cost of the trip to New York.

She will host a Cornhole tournament at noon Sept. 13 at the La Grange Dairy Queen. The cost is $30. There will also be extra games including a criss cross cornhole board and an Intimidator tourney hosted by Bluegrass Cornhole Company.
