ABILENE -- After another great showing at the state powerlifting meet, Stockdale strongmen Darion McMahan and Matt Valadez returned home from their trip to Abilene this past weekend with hardware around their necks. Both young men competed in the 148-pound class, and both managed top-5 finishes.

McMahan finished second overall, with a three-lift total of 1,385 pounds. He turned in a bench press of 335 pounds, a deadlift of 495 pounds, and a squat of 555 pounds. The squat was not only a new personal best for McMahan, but it also put his name in the record books as a new state squat record for the weight class and division. McMahan earned a silver medal for his efforts, and was also awarded the outstanding lightweight squat of the meet for Division 3.

Teammate Valadez has gotten better throughout the season, and he hit his peak at the state meet, setting new personal records in all three lifts. Valadez powered up 285 pounds on the bench, 470 pounds in the squat, and matched McMahan with a dead lift of 495 pounds. All three personal records also led to a new personal best total weight of 1,250 pounds.

For McMahan, the meet marks the end of his high school powerlifting career. For Valadez, it means he has just one more season to leave his mark on the state powerlifting program, though it’s clear these two have already left their mark in Stockdale.
