Wildcats Powerlifting Back in Action Next Saturday

Coach Brett Page and his squad had yet another solid outing.

In Mount Pleasant, Wildcats powerlifting placed second in their third-straight competition.

Logan Lawrence was the first athlete from Sulphur Springs to win his weight group (114), lifting 765 total pounds Saturday.

Cristobal Torres, the second and final Wildcat winning his weight class Saturday, squatted 345, benched 215 and dead lifted 355 in Mount Pleasant.

Abe Banuelos, also in 132 finished behind Torres in second. Isaac Riley came two spots later in fourth.

Max Williamson (123) came just short of winning his class, with a 1,020 pound total.

In 165, Trentin McKinney got fifth Saturday, squatting 350, benching 235 and dead lifting 395 in the third competition for the men’s powerlifting team.

Levi Barnes came in sixth in his weight group.

Two Sulphur Springs athletes in 198, Cameron Jefferson and Blaine Allen, got 10th and 12th, respectively.

Three Wildcats bottomed-out in the third competition of the spring season:

  • Matt Mitchell
  • Nate Andrews
  • Sean Dial

Even so, the others made up the difference as Sulphur Springs still finished a point over third place Wills Point.

Coach Page and the men’s powerlifting team finished second overall.
