On Saturday, the San Saba High School Power lifting team competed in the Regional Power Lifting meet in Riesel. As a team we finished 4
th out of at least 30 schools. This is a wonderful accomplishment for these young men and our community. We are extremely proud of their accomplishments this week and their accomplishments throughout the year. If you see any of these lifters, please congratulate them on their awesome performance at the Regional meet.
Three of the eight lifters that competed received a medal. Due to the meet being a regional competition, much like a regional tournament in basketball or regional track meet, this meet was a highly competitive meet and our lifters should be congratulated on their performances. All of the lifters should be complimented on their progress throughout the year and how much they have improved their totals over the course of this power-lifting season. It is a huge accomplishment for a lifter to make it to the regional meet, and to compete at this level of competition is a great experience for these young men.
Seven of the eight lifters that competed will be returning next year. The future is bright for San Saba Power Lifting. We are extremely proud of the other Dillo lifters that qualified for the regional meet and competed well. All of the lifters at the regional meet bettered their totals and each one of them bettered their regional standings. Each Dillo lifter that competed in the regional meet finished at least 8
th in their weight class and should be commended on their efforts. The Dillo lifters are continually working harder and bettering their totals each and every week and we are extremely proud of their performances.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to each lifter on the San Saba Power Lifting team this year for their hard work and determination, and we would also like to express our thanks to the community and the school district for their support of these lifters throughout the year!
