On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the San Saba High School Power lifting team competed in the DeLeon meet. The team increased in participant numbers from last year. This year we had 15 boys compete and 3 girls. The San Saba Boys team finished second out of 15 teams. 8 lifters that competed received individual medals for their accomplishments. We had a really good showing in the boys division and we had several lifters gain some valuable experience. We had three girls compete that were new to the sport and they are to be commended for their performance, too. All of our San Saba lifters competed to the best of their ability and showed some really good totals for the first meet of the year and many lifters got 8 of their 9 lifts or better which is really good for the first meet. We are extremely proud of the lifters that competed at this meet, and we look forward to seeing them progress throughout the power-lifting season. If you get a chance to see any of our lifters, please pat them on the back and let them know what a wonderful job they are doing representing San Saba High School and our community.
