Adrian Lopez will represent Natalia at the State Powerlifting Meet in Abilene March 22 in Abilene. Lopez placed 3rd overall in the 123lb weight class at last week’s Regional Meet in Edinberg.
Lopez totaled 1,080 pounds combined with a squat of 375, a bench of 240, and a deadlift of 465lbs.
Oscar Ramos, Luis Buentello, and Eduardo Lopez also gave it their best shot to extend their season one more event but fell just short of their ultimate goal.
Ramos placed 10th in the 114lb division with lifts of 325lb in squat, 170lb on bench, and a 305lb deadlift to total an even 800 pounds.
Buentello placed 5th in the 220lb division, totaling 1,395 pounds. He squatted 585lb, benched 315lb, and deadlifted 495lbs.
Eduardo Lopez bombed out after posting 315lb in squat in the 114lb division.
Congratulations to all four Mustang lifters on a great 2023 season and best of luck to Adrian at State!
