Wildcats Powerlifting Off This Week After Finishing Second

Coach Bret Page and Wildcats powerlifting take this week off, their lone bye of the spring season. Sulphur Springs heads into their bye riding high after a second-consecutive 2nd place finish.

Last Thursday the team headed to nearby Paris for the second competition and competed very well.

According to coach Casey Jeter, every lifter set new personal records in squat, bench, and dead lift.  

Starting with the lowest weight class in 114, Logan Lawrence won his group squatting 280, benching 185 and dead lifts of 285 lbs.

Max Williamson, the second Wildcat to win his weight group of 123, totaling 970 pounds in Paris.

Kyshaun John (148) placed sixth in his class. Another athlete from Sulphur Springs, Aiden Riley, finished in eighth behind John.

Two more Wildcats placed top-10 in 165; Anderson Grimes and Chase Maynard, placed ninth and 10th, respectively.

Zach Clark of 181 placed eighth in Paris.

Sulphur Springs had three athletes in 198: Matt Mitchell, finishing second, totaling 1,435 pounds weights lifted, with Blaine Allen finishing 10th in the weight group.

The third and last Wildcat to place in 198, Larren Vaughn, placed 15th.

In the 242 weight class, Gage Williams placed seventh, and in 308 Sean Dial picked up a bronze medal lifting 580/360/515.

Coach Bret Page’s team, cumulating 22 points Thursday in Paris, placed second in their second consecutive meet.

Both powerlifting teams have their lone bye of the spring season this week but are next in action Saturday, Feb. 11 in Mount Pleasant.

The third competition for both Sulphur Springs powerlifting squads gets underway that Saturday at 8:30 A.M.
