Three senior Arabian powerlifters fit the term “student-athlete” to a T as they landed on one of three Texas High School Women’s Powerlifting Association Academic teams at the conclusion of last season.
Jordan Erxleben earned the highest possible ranking as she was recognized on the Academic Elite honor roll. Jordan was one of 104 lifters from the entire state to make the Elite list.
Cassandra Elias was tabbed First-Team Academic All-State. Elias was one of 78 to make the First-Team.
Victoria Nunez made Second-Team Academic All-State. Nunez was one of 114 honored on the Second Team.
“These ladies excelled both in the sport of powerlifting and in academics,” stated Head Coach Paul Gomez. “It is a full time job to be on the top of both of those categories and we are very proud of them!”
Congratulations Jordan, Cassandra, and Victoria for upholding the academic value of being a true student-athlete and excelling both in the classroom and in athletic competitions.
