Coach Tom Dracos said, “I couldn’t be more proud of our girls.  They really showed up today.  There was a really cool part of the day.  Saman that picked up 325 to secure her 2nd place and 30 seconds late Cheyenne Jones dead lifted 255 lbs to put her in first.  Great moment!  Unfortunately a girl deadlifted 285 lbs to tie Cheyenne for 1st.  Cheyenne weighed more than the other lifter so she got 2nd.  1 lb….The difference between 1st and 2nd.  1 lb the difference between State Champs and State Runner Ups.  Cheyenne and I joked on the weigh home that we were 1 quesarito(her favorite) away from 1st!  Bet she gets it next year!
