Congratulations to DHS State Power Lifter winners!!!

According to DHS Power Lifting coach Josh Kelly, 2014 will go down as a year of “fantastic firsts” in Denison Power Lifting history!  “In only the 2nd year of the program we had two girls make it to the State meet.  Laura Martinez placed 9th at State, and Skye Johnson finished 12th in State.  We had 2 boys earn Academic All State in Powerlifting:  Jamie Wood made the elite team, and Justin Bigelow made the first team.  We had 2 Boys compete at the State Powerlifting meet this past Saturday in Abilene.  Sergio Orona and Justin Bigelow both competed. Sergio Orona placed 5th in the 242 pound class.  WE NOW HAVE A STATE CHAMPION POWERLIFTER AMONG US: Justin Bigelow is a State Champion in the 275 pound class!  He won the meet and set a new meet record with a total of 1935 pounds lifted!!!  That is a 750 pound squat, 505 pound Bench Press, and a 680 pound Deadlift (Amazing!). We are all so very proud of these exceptional DHS Yellow Jackets!”
