Lifters to compete in Plains meet next week

Maidens fifth, Indians third in home meet
Dominate– Senior Alexia Gonzales squats 310 pounds at the home meet on Feb. 1. Gonzales took first overall in the 198-pound class, lifting a total of 810 pounds

The power lifters will compete in Plains on Feb. 15. 

  Lifters new to the program are learning from their mistakes. 

  ‘‘They need to get comfortable with failure,” Maiden Coach Will McCallister said. “Once they get comfortable, we can go from there.’’ 

  Junior Yumalai Roblero Perez, for instance,  is new to power lifting, and “joined because I just wanted to try something new.”            

  Power lifting included three events: squat, bench press and dead lift.

  ‘‘Squat is my best event,” senior Carsen Cox said. “Mainly I work  legs being in football.’’ 

  Senior Alexia Gonzales took second at state last year.  

  ‘‘I am going to advance to state again with hard work, dedication, determination and commitment,’ ’Gonzales said. ‘‘Diet and form play a great role into this too, and I’ve always been glad to push through with it.’’   

  Gonzales is mentoring the younger athletes.  

  ‘‘I’ve always had great teammates and coaches that push me to be the greatest,” Gonzales said. ‘‘I’m doing my best to push my teammates as underclassmen to strive for great things. because I was there once–a freshman not knowing what the future holds.”
