FLORESVILLE -- With the powerlifting season winding down, the Floresville Tigers hit the road to close out the season at Medina Valley and Southside. The Tigers made a great effort, and now wait to hear who will be competing at the regional.

Several lifters made the trip to Medina Valley, and senior Benny Ximenez once again led the way with his second-place finish in the 242-pound class. Ximenez lifted a total of 1,460 pounds, including a bench press of 345 pounds, a deadlift of 515 pounds, and a massive squat of 600 pounds. Final results are pending, but Ximenez will likely be heading to the regional.

A host of freshmen also made good showings at Medina Valley while competing in the 148- and 165-pound classes. Juan Medina led the way in the 148-pound class with his three-lift total of 860 pounds. He had a bench press of 185, a squat of 330, and a deadlift of 335. Preston Taggs also had a good showing in the same class, lifting a total of 835 pounds with a bench press of 185, a squat of 320, and a deadlift of 330.

In the 165-pound class, Stefen Villanueva led the Tiger freshmen with his three-lift total of 855 pounds. Villanueva turned in a bench press of 215, a squat of 295, and a deadlift of 345 pounds. Joseph Quintanilla and Andy Joslin each lifted 780 pounds. Quintanilla had a bench press of 195, a deadlift of 285, and a squat of 300, while Joslin had a bench press of 155, a deadlift of 305, and a squat of 320.

From there, the Tigers made plans to travel to Southside to compete in their final regular meet of the season. Ximenez once again led the Tiger effort, as the senior picked up another second-place finish. Ximenez dropped his total lift slightly, but still finished with 1,420 pounds. He had a bench press of 345 pounds, a deadlift of 475, and a squat of 600 pounds.

Fellow senior Alexander Trevino competed in the same class, and he finished right behind Ximenez with a three-lift total of 1,375 pounds. Trevino had a bench press of 315, a deadlift of 510, and turned in a squat of 550 pounds to grab the bronze medal.

Sophomore C.J. Felux helped round out a good Floresville showing with his three-lift total of 1,160 pounds while competing in a packed 165-pound class. Felux had a bench press of 230 pounds, a squat of 440, and locked out a deadlift of 490 pounds.
