Jaelynn Clark wins second state title
Jaelynn Clark of East Central shows off some of the trophies and awards she won during the 2013 powerlifting season. Clark won her second consecutive state title on March 15 after setting multiple personal records.
CORPUS CHRISTI -- For the second time in as many years, Jaelynn Clark of East Central High School can call herself state champion.
Clark, a junior at East Central, traveled to Corpus Christi March 15 to participate in the Texas High School Women’s Powerlifting Association state meet. Clark won her division last year as a sophomore, and was looking for a repeat along the Texas coastline. Clark had another amazing meet, setting three new personal records, while easily winning the 220+ class, and bettering her closest opponent by 180 pounds.
Clark’s total lift of 1,210 pounds was a new personal record for her. She also set new personal records in the bench press at 250 pounds, and in the dead lift at 450 pounds. She also managed a squat of 510 pounds.
In addition to the gold medal, Clark was also awarded the coveted State Championship Award, which recognizes her as the Grand Champion among the individual state champions from all classes (1A-5A) in her weight class.
Congratulations, Jaelynn, on a job well-done!
