BISHOP -- After another strong showing by the Pirette powerlifting team March 3 in the regional meet, another team trophy is on display in Poth, and several athletes are headed to the state meet in Corpus Christi.

While the Pirettes finished second as a team, Kadalina Escobedo finished first in the 97-pound class with a three-lift total of 555 pounds. It was a 45-pound increase for her, and a 20-pound victory over her closest competitor. Escobedo had a squat of 225 pounds, a bench press of 110 pounds, and a deadlift of 220 pounds.

Yarisa Ramon finished second in the 123-pound class with a total of 655 pounds, which was a 20-pound increase on her best total. She had lifts of 265 pounds in the squat, 125 pounds on the bench, and 275 pounds in a dead lift. Ramon and the first-place lifter were tied at 655 pounds total, and their “weigh-in” bodyweights were identical. The tie was therefore broken by way of a “re-weigh,” and the other lifter was declared the winner.

Jessica Coronado won another gold medal while competing in the 132-pound class for Poth, increasing her season-best performance by 30 pounds. Coronado turned in a three-lift total of 740 pounds, powering up a squat of 310 pounds, a bench press of 130 pounds, and a 300-pound deadlift. The second-place lifter in the class finished at 725 pounds.

Daniella Noguez made a strong regional finish and went home with third-place honors in the 148-pound class with a total of 740 pounds. She had a squat of 300 pounds, a bench press of 140 pounds, and a deadlift of 300 pounds. Noguez narrowly missed her second deadlift attempt of 300 pounds, forcing her to attempt the same weight for her third and final lift. Coach Tim Bordovsky believes she could have done more weight, if she would have had another attempt to get it done.

Marisol Palacios finished fourth in the 198-pound class with a total of 740 pounds, which was a 50-pound increase on her previous best total. She turned in a squat of 310 pounds, a bench press of 150, and had a deadlift of 280 pounds.

“On Marisol’s last deadlift attempt, we decided to put the weight she needed to pull in order to hit her qualifying total to go to state, which was 335 pounds,” Bordovsky said. “Marisol lifted the bar almost to lock out and narrowly missed the attempt. She had a great freshman year of powerlifting.”

As a team, the Pirettes earned 24 points, which earned them the second-place team award.

“Special thanks to Chase Wiatrek and Kolby Janek for all their help at the meet,” Bordovsky added. “The girls couldn’t have done it without them.”

Escobedo, Ramon, Coronado, and Noguez have all qualified for and will compete at the state powerlifting meet. The meet is scheduled for this Friday, March 16, at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi. Coronado and Noguez will be going back to the state meet for their third time, and Bordovsky said they have been great teammates and leaders of this team.

“I can’t say enough about Jess and Danny,” Bordovsky said. “They were freshmen on the first girls powerlifting team in Poth, and have done so much for the sport in Poth. It has come down to this one last trip to state for them.

“I truly hope they have enjoyed the past four years as much as I have,” he said, “but we have one more meet together and I hope it is great for them.

“Yarisa and Kaddy are making their first State appearance, and they have worked extremely hard to get here,” he added. “I only wish they weren’t all seniors and we could do it all again next year. They are a very special group and will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace next season.”
