A 12-member Wildcats’ powerlifting team, made up mostly of freshmen and sophomores, finished seventh at a Mount Pleasant meet on Saturday. Wildcats Coach Casey Jeter said he wanted his young lifters to be featured while the veteran lifters had time off to heal up for future events. 220 lifters participated and Coach Jeter said six of his dozen Wildcats got medals for top five finishes. In the 114 pound weight class, Trenton Johnson was second and Austin McCain was fourth. Noah Johnson was third in the 165 pound weight class. George Greenway was fourth in the 181 pound weight class. Ignacio Guerrero was fifth in the 275 pound weight class. Alfredo Olaveto was fifth in the Super Heavy Weight class. Coach Jeter said the lifters represented Sulphur Springs well and they got better. He said he will be taking his top lifters to a Commerce meet on February 17 so they can work to secure spots in the regional meet. Coach Jeter said at the current time, 16 Wildcats have lift totals good enough to qualify for the regional meet. The Wildcats had 11 lifters qualify last year. Coach Jeter said he and the team have a goal of winning the Regional Meet. They were fourth last year.
