Stockdale powerlifters earn medals
YORKTOWN -- For the second time this season, the Stockdale High School powerlifting team traveled to Yorktown Feb. 5, and everyone showed improvement.
In boys competition, Darion McMahan looked good as he powered his way to a gold medal and first-place finish in the 132-pound weight class. McMahan, who finished second during the meet last month, lifted an impressive 230-pound bench press, a 380-pound dead lift, and a 400-pound squat, up nearly 100 pounds from his total a month ago. Perry Bone also competed for the Brahmas, and he muscled up a 190-pound bench press, a 300-pound dead lift, and a 300-pound squat while competing in the 165-pound class.
On the girls’ side, Stockdale took home a gold and bronze medal, and narrowly missed the podium with a fifth-place finish as well.
Ashley Valadez led the way for the Lady Brahmas with her second first-place finish in the 114-pound class in Yorktown. Valadez lifted 90 pounds in the bench press and 225 pounds on the squat rack, and turned in a dead lift of 240 pounds. Her performance proved to be 50 pounds better than last month’s.
Roxy Bischak earned a third-place finish in her class, muscling up a 110-pound bench press, a 260-pound squat, and a 290-pound dead lift. Lacey Dugi also had a good showing for Stockdale in the 114-pound class to earn a fifth-place finish. Dugi turned in a bench press of 80 pounds, a squat of 175 pounds, and a dead lift of 205 pounds. Bischak finished sixth in Yorktown last month, and Dugi moved up from seventh in her class.
Stockdale is scheduled to return to competition this Saturday, Feb. 19, as the team travels to Castroville and Medina Valley High School.
