The Glen Rose High School boys powerlifters finished second in the boys division of the Stephenville Invitational Powerlifting Meet, and the Lady Tigers finished sixth among the girls.
But the better news is that five GRHS girls — Angie Herrera, Alexis Norman, Jazmin Garcia, Antonia Diaz, and Breana Rosentreter — have qualified for the Region 2, Division 2 Class 4A girls regional meet. That will be March 3 in Temple.
The boys regional qualifiers won’t be known until early next week. That meet will be March 10 in Smithville.
GRHS coach Terry Harlin said he’s looking forward to seeing the hard work the girls qualifiers will put in leading up to the regional event “to get stronger,” and also to “see how we’ll do and hopefully rise to the level of competition.”
Early won the girls division at last Saturday’s meet, followed by Lampasas and Stephenville.
Harlin said it was a great day overall for the Tigers and Lady Tigers, against tough competition, noting it was a “very tough and competitive meet with a lot of good lifters in both the boys and girls divisions in each weight class. Our boys took home the second-place team trophy to a very solid Lampasas team.
“Our girls were sixth overall, which is pretty good considering the level of competition. We had several school records broken. (I’m) very happy overall with how are kids competed trying to get their totals up and trying their best to qualify for regionals.”
Rosentreer set GRHS girls school records for squat, bench press, deadlift and total lifted on the way to winning first place in her weight class.
Herrera earned second place in her class, recording school records for squat, bench, deadlift and total.
Dillon Graves once again won a first-place title in his class for the Tigers, setting school records for bench, deadlift and total.
Tiger teammates Nic Lara and Hayden Shaw both won their respective weight classes, and Tanner Stroud took home second place in his class. Lara’s marks in the squat, bench and total were school records.
