The Poth powerlifting team has grown over the years. Everyone has started to work out and prepare themselves for the first meet in January. There have even been some very dedicated members who haven’t stopped working since last year’s season was over.

There are definitely a few new faces and they are ready to lift this year. The powerlifting team is planning to achieve many goals, not just personally but as a team as well.

Members of the team weighed in on a couple of questions.

Q. What do you look forward to this year in powerlifting?

A. “Seeing my team improve and hopefully going to nationals” -- Marisol Palacios

“Working with our team” -- James Meyer

“Seeing my team improve and hopefully going to state” -- Jamison Smolka

“Regionals” -- Amber Rangel

“Making it to state” -- Kayla Feliciano

“To lift more” -- Kacee Janek

“To have fun” -- Taylor Sanchez

“Competing at the meets” -- Jesse Montez

“Going to regionals” -- Alan Johns

“Getting stronger” -- Kyle Jiral

“Winning medals” -- Kolby Janek

“Getting stronger” -- Thomas Rodriquez

Q. Why did you decide to do powerlifting?

A. “I got recruited by Coach Bordovsky, decided to give it a try, and fell in love with it.” -- Marisol

“Jamison talked me into it, and I like to lift weights.” -- James

“Because I love lifting weights” -- Jamison

“I was curious to see what it was about.” -- Amber

“I decided to try something new and I love it.” -- Kayla

“My brother made me.” -- Kaycee

“Kacee talked me into it.” -- Taylor

“Because I want to get stronger” -- Jesse

“Because I like weight lifting” -- Alan

“So I don’t get fat” -- Kyle

“Because I lifted a lot while I was in eighth grade” -- Kolby

“I wanted to do different things.” -- Thomas

The body cannot achieve what the mind cannot conceive. With that being said, this team will be working hard to be the very best they can be.

Poth High School junior Erin Chacon hopes to attend culinary school after graduation. She is the daughter of Melinda and Ricky Jalufka.
