The girls powerlifting team competed at regionals, and sophomores Callie Schmidt, Addison Frazier, and seniors Kathleen Goodwin and Gabby Cabrera qualified for state. The state championship will be on March 17 in Frisco.

“I’m really excited for the opportunity to compete at state,” Schmidt said. “It’s my first year qualifying, and I hope I do well.”

Cabrera set a new regional record with a 300 lb bench press. She also won the most outstanding bench press award in the 259 weight class. 

“I’m glad that I got first place for outstanding bench, but all that doesn’t matter now,” Cabrera said. “What does matter now is the way I work hard for state and find my way to be successful.”

The boys powerlifting team also competed at regionals, and sophomore Drew Ragland qualified for state. The state championship will be held on March 24 in Abilene.

“I qualified for state last year as well, so I’m excited to compete again this year,” Ragland said. “I hope I’m able to perform better than I did last year.”

The track teams competed in the Panther Relays in Bullard this past Friday. The varsity boys teams placed first, the junior varsity boys team placed second, and both girls teams placed fourth.

I feel like I did a decent job but there is definitely always room for improvement,” senior Kaylee Brousseau said. “As far as team performance goes, again I think we performed as best as we could.”

The golf team played in Hideaway on Monday and won first place. Sophomore Kenzie McClenny shot a round of 78 and placed second individually.

“I’m super proud of my performance at the meet,” McClenny said. “I’m especially proud of the team and us placing first overall.”
