Coming out of last week’s district meet in Haslet, the Glen Rose High School boys powerlifting team had one individual who met the necessary mark to qualify for the regional meet, but only the school’s seven previously announced girls will be advancing to compete at that level.
“Marcus Moseley is our lone regional qualifier on the boys side; however, he will not be participating due to a family vacation conflict,” GRHS powerlifting coach Terry Harlin stated after learning how all of the boys regional qualifiers stacked up.
Although Moseley can’t attend, the boys regional powerlifting will be March 15 in Smithville.
The Lady Tigers, however, do have Angie Herrera, Abby Green, Bailee Boyett, Emery Brewer, Courtney Chapman, Austin Woolard and Mallory Alexander who will are advancing. Those Lady Tigers are scheduled to have their regional event Saturday, March 7, at Del Valle High School.
The district powerlifting meet included Aledo, Granbury, Fort Worth Brewer, Boswell, Saginaw, Chisholm Trail, Azle and Springtown. The Glen Rose lifters placed eighth overall.
Moseley had the best finish among the Tigers, placing second in his 220-pound weight class.
Harlin noted that he was “Very proud of all of our lifters who represented Glen Rose in the meet, and for all of the other lifters who represented us throughout the season. We had three lifters who were freshmen who participated in the district meet: Triston Black, Zander Key and Peyton Klein. We are already excited about next year, with all of the valuable experience that all of our young lifters gained this season; we had over 20 freshmen lifters who lifted in at least tow meets this year. We also had some great leadership from our senior lifters this season: Matthew Locke, Tony Ramos, Baker Butler, and Marcus Moseley.
Here are the GRHS results from the boys district meet:
132-pound weight class — 5. JoJo Talavera, 730 total pounds lifted.
