The Natalia Lady Mustangs finished up with their regular slate of meets in San Antonio last Thursday. Natalia was able to finish in 2nd place as a team, as they had a total of twelve lifters lift for the “A” team. The Lady Mustangs also had eleven girls lift as members of the “B” team and all together, the girls in blue had plenty of success.
“Everyone competed very well and we had a lot of personal records for several lifters,” Coach Kasey Crowther said.
Aside from the 20+ lifters, there were a number of girls in blue who took the night off due to the fact they had already qualified for the regional meet.
Looking at the “A” team members, they finished with three first place finishes. Dezarae Perez finished in 1st place in the 165 lb. weight class thanks to an 815 lb. total. Her total included a 315 lb. squat, a 170 lb. bench press and a 300 lb. dead lift.
Zita Perez claimed 1st place in the 181 lb. weight class thanks to a 755 lb. total. Her total included a 295 lb. squat, a 150 lb. bench press and a 310 lb. dead lift.
The final Lady Mustang to finish in 1st place was Jasmine Ramon who did so in the 198 lb. weight class. She used a 370 lb. squat, a 150 lb. bench press and a 345 lb. dead lift to compose an 865 lb. total.
