The Cuero Record
The Cuero powerlifting team competed at their first meet of the season on Saturday, Jan. 9 in Weimar with many new members competing for the Gobblers.
Coach Jordan Hataway said, “Our kids competed well on Saturday in Weimer. It was a lot of the kids first meet ever so learning the technical part of the competition is always the most difficult part, but they did a tremendous job.”
On the girls side, April Reyes earned first place in the 198 class with a total of 415 pounds. Dana Mican had the highest squat in her weight class (275 pounds) and also deadlifted 260 pounds.
“All the girls did a great job, and we look for great things from them in upcoming meets,” coach Hataway said.
For the boys, freshman Justin Ficklen placed first in the 148 pound class with a total of 745 pounds.
