STOCKDALE -- They both attained new personal records in two of their three lifts, but at the end of the day at the state powerlifting meet, the lady lifters from Stockdale were just a little short of reaching the podium.
Katelyn Shaver and MaKaley Perez of Stockdale each qualified for the Texas High School Women’s Powerlifting Association state meet held last weekend in Corpus Christi. Both young women competed in the 105-pound class, and both went home with top-10 finishes.
Shaver finished with a total weight of 630 pounds, a personal record, and a total good enough to earn her a sixth-place finish. She turned in a bench press of 110 pounds, a new personal best of 230 pounds in the squat rack, and a personal best of 290 pounds in the dead lift -- a weight nearly three times her own body weight.
Perez also had a good showing, as she finished ninth overall with a total weight of 595, which was a new personal best for her, as well. Perez had a bench press of 100 pounds, a squat of 230, and a dead lift of 265 pounds. Her squat and dead lift were new personal records.
“The girls did great all year and it ended with a great state meet,” said Stockdale Powerlifting Coach Michael Enriquez. “The girls had a P.R. (personal record) on two of three lifts and a P.R. total. I am very proud of all the girls and of all their accomplishments this year.”
And while the girls state powerlifting meet is over, Stockdale still has hope for some hardware. The boys powerlifting meet is this weekend, and two Brahma lifters will be competing.
