Pair of Pirette powerlifters win gold
YORKTOWN -- The Poth High School powerlifting team only sent five athletes to Yorktown Feb. 5, but all five earned top-10 finishes, and two took home first-place honors.
In girls competition, Daniella Noguez and Antoniette Price each placed first in the respective weight classes. Noguez finished with a 735-pound total, turning in a squat and dead lift of 300 pounds each, and a bench press of 135 pounds. Price finished with a 715-pound total, matching the bench press of Noguez at 135 pounds, and managing a squat and dead lift of 285 pounds and 295 pounds, respectively.
On the guys side, Chase Wiatrek finished second in the boys 198-pound class, Anthony Fish was third in the 242-pound class, and Kolby Janek finished eighth in the 220-pound class.
According to Head Coach Tim Bordovsky, Noguez and Jessica Coronado have already achieved their qualifying totals this year -- guaranteeing them a spot at the regional meet. Price is also very close to hitting her qualifying total. Fish improved his weight total by 60 pounds in Yorktown, and Wiatrek has improved his total by a whopping 155 pounds.
Bordovsky said participation in practice sessions and competitions has been down a bit lately, as several of his athletes have also been busy with the stock shows, UIL competitions, and other various activities. That doesn’t have him worried, though.
“The kids haven’t been able to all lift together at the same meet,” Bordovsky said, “but they are all getting ready for their last meets before regionals.”
