The Poth High School powerlifting team competed very well Jan. 11 at the Navarro Invitational. This was Poth’s first meet of the year.

Winners included Kacee Janek, third, 132-lb class; Kayla Feliciano, first, 148-lb class; and Marisol Palacios, first, 198-lb class, and Outstanding Heavy Lifter Award.

Other winners were Rigo Franco, first, 132-lb class; Thomas Rodriguez, second, 132-lb class; Alan Johns, second, 148-lb class; Jamison Smolka, first, 165-lb class; Kyle Jiral, fifth, 181-lb class; and Kolby Janek, first, 242-lb class.

Q.What did you do to prepare for your first meet of the season?

Feliciano: “Honestly not much. But I did the best I could to stay after school and work hard!”

Junior Brianna Beasley: “I mentally prepared myself and hoped for the best!”

Junior Bianca Solis: “To prepare for the meet, I worked on the problems Coach saw and made sure to correct them.”

Junior Clayton Jaskinia: “Since it was my first meet, I learned from the others how things flowed and went from there.”

Q. How do you think you did for your first meet?

Junior Jessie Montez: “I didn’t do great because I bombed out.”

Junior James Meyer: “Not as well as I hoped, I made mistakes I shouldn’t have.”

Sophomore William Serna: “Decent, but I want to improve a lot.”

Senior Thomas Rodriguez: “I did all right but I could have done better.”

Q. What are some of the things you need to improve on?

Palacios: “I need to improve on my timing for every meet and keeping my composure while lifting instead of freaking myself out.”

Junior Amber Rangel: “Not dieting the wrong way.”

Jiral: “The rule on what to do after you complete the lift.”

Franco: “I need to improve on my balance.”

The next meet will be in George West on Saturday, Feb. 1, and the team has already started working even harder to meet bigger and better goals.

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