Girl’s state powerlifting meet

Lindale girls go to state in powerlifting

Chassity Sims and Nicole Borger traveled to Corpus Christi on March 15th to compete in the girls State Powerlifting Competition. Lindale competed with schools like Forney and Gregory-Portland.

“It was fun to compete because a lot of kids don’t make it to state,” Nicole Borger said. “But it was nerve-wracking too. A lot of people look up to you when you go to state.”

Sophomore Chassity Sims placed at the competition, despite it only being her second year to compete.

“Chassity got 8th in the state in her weight class, which is a pretty big accomplishment,” Coach Cochran said. “She did a great job and she’s only a sophomore, so she’ll be able to improve and get better over these next few years.”

This state meet was the last girl’s powerlifting competition for the rest of the school year.

“I thought I would place a little higher,” Chassity Sims said. “But I definitely look forward to competing again.”
