During the ceremony at the game Friday night, Alicia Woollcott wasn’t in the locker room for a team pep talk, she went to the sidelines with the other nominees for queen.

Woollcott was in full football uniform, shoulder pads and all, when her name was called as the queen for 2017-2018.

Woollcott, who is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and 165 pounds, is no stranger to a male-dominated world.

She’s an all-state power lifter, and power lifting team captain who can squat 300 pounds, benches 175 pounds and dead lifts 335 pounds, Michigan Live reported.

But the lifting linebacker is also a competitive cheerleader and a member of the water polo team.

After Friday’s big game, where Grand Blanc ended up losing its first of the season, Woollcott ditched her helmet and uniform and traded it for a peach dress for the Saturday evening dance, Michigan Live reported.
