CORPUS CHRISTI -- The Poth High School powerlifting team was represented at the state meet March 17 in Corpus Christi by Kadalina Escobedo, Yarisa Ramon, Jessica Coronado, and Daniella Noguez.

Noguez finished in a tie for sixth place with a total of 785 pounds, an increase of 45 pounds from her previous season-best effort. She turned in lifts of 330 pounds in the squat, 150 pounds on the bench, and managed a deadlift of 305 pounds. These weights were all personal bests for her this season. Noguez narrowly missed her last deadlift attempt of 325 pounds, which would have given her the silver medal.

Coronado also finished sixth in her weight class with a total of 730 pounds. She turned in a squat of 305 pounds, a bench press of 145, and a deadlift of 280 pounds. Head Coach Tim Bordovsky said she missed her third squat attempt of 320 pounds and her last deadlift of 305 pounds, which would have given her a bronze medal.

Keeping pace with her teammates, Ramon also finished sixth in her weight class with a total of 675 pounds. For Ramon, it was a new personal best this season. She had a squat of 270 pounds, a bench press of 125 pounds, and lifted 280 pounds in the deadlift. Bordovsky said Ramon narrowly missed her last squat attempt and deadlift attempt, which would have given her a fifth-place medal.

Leading the Pirettes was Escobedo with a 585-pound total and a second-place finish in her weight class. For the state silver medalist, it was a new season best and increase of 30 pounds. She powered up 240 pounds in the squat, 110 pounds on the bench, and had an impressive deadlift of 235 pounds.

“Kadalina seemed to have the gold medal won when a girl bumped her last deadlift to 270 pounds, which was 35 pounds more than she had ever done this season, in an attempt to tie Kadalina,” Bordovsky said. “The girl from Rio Vista lifted the weight and tied Kadalina. The tie was broken by bodyweight, giving the Rio Vista girl the gold medal.”

After the team returned from the meet, Bordovsky reflected on the trip to state and the season in general.

“Had a few things gone differently, all the girls would have medals, but they all had great seasons,” he said. “One thing that makes me especially proud is how they competed with everything they had and kept their composure even when faced with adversity. It says a lot about an athlete when they continue to push forward when things don’t go exactly as planned.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the girls; they will always have a special place in my heart,” Bordovsky said. “I will miss them all. The last thing they left Poth powerlifting with is a display of competing like champions time after time, leaving everything they had on the platform.”

In addition to the pride Bordovsky has in the Pirette lifters, he also gave praise to two of his Pirate lifters for their efforts.

“Chase Wiatrek and Kolby Janek need a special thanks for all their hard work at the meet,” he said. “They really did a great job taking care of everything and gave the girls the best chance to win.”
