SAN ANTONIO -- Floresville High School Head Powerlifting Coach Jason Pfluger took his Tiger team to its first competition of the season at Southside High School recently, and returned home with several pieces of hardware, including the second-place team trophy.

Making the biggest statement of the meet was senior Johnathan Saldana. The super heavyweight competitor made a trip to the state powerlifting meet last year, and got a great start toward that goal again at Southside. Saldana turned in an incredible weight total of 1,710 pounds, earning first place in the super heavyweight class, and later being named as the meet’s “outstanding male lifter.” Saldana reached his total with a bench press of 385 pounds, a deadlift of 600 pounds, and squat of 725 pounds.

In addition to the gold Saldana took home, teammates Benny Ximenez and Travis Morales also earned gold medals.

Ximenez competed in the 275-pound weight class, and he took home gold with a total lift weight of 1,340 pounds. He powered up 335 pounds on the bench, 450 pounds in the deadlift, and had a squat of 555 pounds.

Morales competes in the 165-pound class, but still turned in impressive numbers with his total weight of 1,125 pounds to earn a first-place finish. He had a bench press of 235 pounds, a deadlift of 435, and a squat of 455 pounds.

Gilbert Perez also competed in the 165-pound class for Floresville, and he earned a bronze medal with his third-place weight total of 1,100 pounds. Perez lifted 230 pounds on the bench, 440 pounds in the deadlift, and had a squat of 430.

Alexander Trevino was also involved in the powerlifting meet at Southside, and he earned an impressive second-place finish to grab the silver medal in his weight class. Trevino lifted a total of 1,235 pounds and competed in the 242-pound weight class. He lifted 275 pounds in the bench press, had a deadlift of 485, and powered up 475 in the squat rack.

In the 123-pound class, the Tiger powerlifting team was well-represented by Mark Livesay. He also made a strong showing for Floresville, and grabbed a third-place medal with his total lift weight of 735 pounds. Livesay bench pressed a total of 145 pounds, had a deadlift of 305, and lifted 285 pounds in the squat.

Pfluger expressed his excitement with the performance of his team, and is looking forward to a successful 2012 season. With hard work, he knows several of his lifters have a chance to compete at the state level again this year.
