CASTROVILLE -- Members of the Poth powerlifting team traveled to Medina Valley High School Feb. 19, as the girls competed in their last regular meet of the season, and the boys geared up for one of the final meets.

In girls competition, Yarissa Ramon finished fifth in the 132-pound class with a 595-pound total. She managed lifts of 235 pounds on the squat rack and 120 pounds in the bench press, and powered up a dead lift of 240 pounds.

Daniella Noguez finished first in the 148-pound class with a 780-pound total. She turned in a 315-pound squat, a 145-pound bench press, and a dead lift of 320 pounds.

Jessica Coronado finished second in the 132-pound class with a squat of 305 pounds, a bench press of 135 pounds, and a dead lift of 305 pounds -- totaling 745 pounds.

Antoniette Price also finished second while competing in the 165-pound class. She powered up 770 total pounds, as she turned in lifts of 295 pounds on the squat rack, 155 pounds on the bench, and 320 pounds in the dead lift.

On the boys side, Kolby Janek finished 10th in the 220-pound class with a 1,000-pound total. He lifted 385 pounds in the squat, 240 on the bench, and 375 pounds in the dead lift. Janek also entered the Poth record books as the first freshman lifter to hit 1,000 pounds.

Coronado, Noguez, and Price each qualified for the Girls Regional Powerlifting Meet in Calallen March 5.

“Jessica and Daniella both competed at the regional and state meets last year, so they are returning there,” said Coach Tim Bordovsky.

The boys were also scheduled to compete in Yorktown in their last meet before the regional meet. Every lifter finished with “PRs” (personal records) in every category.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the ones that competed,” Bordovsky said. “Kolby reached a milestone hitting 1,000 pounds for the first time. The girls participate in so many activities, including one-act play, solo & ensemble, track, and softball, but they find time to dedicate to each activity.

“These girls are here before and after school doing what they have to do in order to be successful in everything,” Bordovsky said. “The dedication they have to their sport, team, and each other is what makes them special. These girls have the best attitude an athlete can have when they show up, and that is ‘What do we get to do today?’”
