The Wildcats’ powerlifting team finished third at a meet at Emory Rains Saturday. Wildcats Coach Casey Jeter said his team wanted to win the meet but he said it just shows you how competitive our area is in powerlifting. Still Coach Jeter said the Wildcats had a very good meet Saturday with some huge positives.
Out of the Wildcats’ eleven team members, Coach Jeter said ten placed in the top five to score points. He said everyone’s total weight lifted increased except for two lifters and Coach Jeter said everyone recorded a personal record in the squat. The Wildcats had two first place finishers: D’idrec Dugan in the 220 pound weight class and Ian Blanch in the 275 pound weight class. Coach Jeter said his team is getting stronger. He said the Wildcats currently have an incredible 11 lifters who are currently qualified for the regional meet. The Wildcats will have one more meet to improve.
They will lift at a Quitman meet on February 18. The regional meet in Lindale will take place March 4.
