Poth powerlifters compete at regionals
Poth powerlifting team Coach Tim Bordovsky congratulates Marisol Palacios, who will compete at the High School National Powerlifting Championships March 30 in Killeen.
The Poth powerlifting teams sent four girls and three boys to the regional competitions this season. Qualifiers on the boys’ side were Alan Johns, Rigo Franco, and Kolby Janek. The boys competed in San Diego on March 8, with Franco finishing in seventh and Janek in fourth, in their respective weight classes. The girls sent Bianca Solis, Amber Rangel, Kayla Feliciano, and Marisol Palacios to the girls regional competition earlier this month. The girls team sent three of its members to the State Meet on March 14. Among the girls who qualified for state were Rangel, Feliciano, and Palacios.
Throughout the season there have been many gold medals and best lifter awards won by the teams, but topping the list is Palacios, who earned gold and best lifter award at every invitational meet this season. “Marisol’s best lifts are 465-pound squat, 205-pound bench, and 350-pound deadlift,” said Coach Tim Bordovsky. “She is really a rare and special lifter.”
After the State Meet, Palacios plans to compete at the High School National Powerlifting Championships on Sunday, March 30, in Killeen.
