FLORESVILLE -- With the regional meet right around the corner, members of the Floresville Tiger powerlifting team finished out their regular season with a pair of meets at Medina Valley and East Central.

The Tigers traveled to Castroville to compete in the Medina Valley meet on Feb. 18. It was the team’s toughest meet of the season, but the Tigers pressed on and finished third among a field of 22 teams.

Senior Jonathan Saldana led the way for Floresville with his first-place finish in the Super Heavy Weight class. Saldana turned in an impressive three-lift weight of 1,780 pounds. He had a bench press of 400 pounds, a deadlift of 630 pounds, and managed 750 pounds in the squat. Also winning gold for the Tigers was Benny Ximenez. He finished first in the 275-pound class, lifting a total of 1,420 pounds. Ximenez had a bench press of 345 pounds, a deadlift of 475, and a squat of 600 pounds.

In the 165-pound class, Travis Morales finished third for the Tigers. His bench press of 235 pounds, deadlift of 470, and squat of 475 pounds put him on the podium with a total weight of 1,180 pounds. Alexander Trevino finished fifth in the 242-pound class, lifting a total of 1,270 pounds. He had a bench press of 295, a deadlift of 475, and powered up 500 pounds in the squat. Scott Gonzales also had a fifth-place finish for Floresville, lifting a total of 940 pounds while competing in the 148-pound class. He had a bench press of 220, a squat of 345, and a deadlift of 375 pounds.

C.J. Felux and Mark Livesay also had good showings, finishing seventh and ninth, respectively. Felux lifted a total of 990 pounds while competing in the 165-pound class, and Livesay muscled up 765 pounds while competing in the 123-pound class. Felux had a bench press of 200 pounds, a squat of 380, and deadlift of 410 pounds. Livesay turned in a bench press of 135 pounds, a squat of 300, and a deadlift of 330 pounds.

The Tigers then went on to compete in the East Central meet Feb. 25. The team once again finished in third overall, and all lifters were among the top five in their weight classes.

Abel Ingle led the Tiger effort this time with his first-place finish in the 148-pound class. Ingle lifted a total of 1,200 pounds with a bench press of 280, a squat of 445, and a deadlift of 475 pounds.

Nick Trevino and Livesay each pulled in a third-place finish at East Central. Trevino competed in the 114-pound class, where he had a weight total of 690 pounds. His bench press of 170, squat of 225, and deadlift of 295 were enough to take home bronze. Livesay had a bench press of 165, a squat of 305, and a deadlift of 340 en route to his 810-pound total.

Morales, Ximenez, and Gonzales each earned fourth-place finishes at East Central. Morales had a total of 1,190 pounds, Ximenez lifted a total of 1,410 pounds, and Gonzales turned in a three-lift total of 980 pounds.

Trevino and Felux each finished fifth in their weight classes, as Trevino improved by 5 pounds to 1,275, and Felux improved by 45 pounds to 1,035.

Powerlifting Head Coach Jason Pfluger said the Tigers had never won a team trophy prior to this season, but that they won trophies at every meet this year.

“I really stressed teamwork and helping each other out in my first year of coaching powerlifting,” Pfluger said. “Even though it is normally thought of as an individual sport, I strived to bring a team concept. I used some different workouts and the lifters worked hard to get these results.”

When the final regional rankings were released, it was no surprise to find Saldana at the top. He is currently first in the Super Heavy Weight class. Ingle is ninth in his weight class, Livesay finished 11th, Ximenez is 12th, Morales is 15th, Nick Trevino is 18th, Alexander Trevino is 21st, Gonzales is 36th, and Felux finished 45th. Pfluger expressed thanks to Roby Pennartz, Joseph Compian, Jarrett Palitza, and Alix Pena for their help this year.

The top 10 in the region for each weight class have qualified for the regional meet scheduled for this weekend in Weslaco, and the Tigers will send Saldana and Ingle. Livesay and Ximenez will go as alternates.
