DHS powerlifting season underway

The Arabian powerlifting team begins its 2020 season Thursday, January 9 at Texas Strength Systems (TSS) in San Antonio while the Warhorses get started on January 16 at the same facility. As a matter of fact all Arabian and Warhorse regular season meets will be at TSS and all will begin at 5:30pm.
“I am definitely excited about our season starting,” stated Head Coach Paul Gomez. “There are close to 50 powerlifters counting both the Arabians and the Warhorses so it is definitely a big group.”
Although the season is just now officially getting underway, goals have been set.
“I think it’s going to be a great year for us and we are aiming to get a few Warhorses and a few Arabians to qualify for the State Championship Meet,” said a more-than-excited Coach Gomez. “Our kids have been working hard and are ready to see where they stand in the region. Coach Devin Rotramel and I cannot wait to see these athletes compete. Powerlifting consists of physical and mental strength and discipline and definitely helps their confidence.”
