The Waxahachie powerlifting team is simply untouchable.
For the third consecutive meet the Indians claimed first place overall as a team.
This time the Indians finished first at the Highland Park Powerlifting Meet on Saturday.
“We competed against 11 teams with powerhouses such as Rowlett, Cedar Hill and Bishop Lynch,” Indians coach Rocky Robinson said.
Five Indians claimed first place in their weight class. In the 114 pound class, Carlos Cadena placed first with a total lift of 890.
Larkin Alexander placed first in the 132 pound class followed by Trevor Scott (second) and Kenny Chance (third).
Aaron Herrera claimed first in the 148 pound class while Andrew Kindred earned first in the 198 pound class. Ryan White was first in the 220 pound class.
“Prior to last Saturday we had over a three-week break from competition. We used that time to hit the weight room hard and to really focus on technique,” Robinson said.
“Coach Terry Minton and myself are proud of the team and effort that was put forth during the break to get them ready for the meet,” he said.
Waxahachie’s last meet of the season is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 28, at The Colony.
With the team’s success this season there is a very good chance it will send a big group of lifters to the regional meet in Lindale.
