Whitesboro Powerlifting Meet

The Whitesboro Bearcats hosted a powerlifting meet Saturday. Dozens of area athletes competed for medals.

Athletes were from area schools such as Blue Ridge, Bonham, Callisburg, Collinsville, Denison, Lindsay, Leonard, Muenster, Pilot Point, Pottsboro, Sherman, Valley View, Van Alstyne, Whitesboro and Whitewright.

A big highlight of the meet was the squat and deadlift marks of Denison's Kailey Jones. Her marks from Saturday's meet exceeded her state records she set from last year, like a deadlift of 475 pounds, which was 35 pounds more than what she did at State last year.

As a team, the Denison boys and girls won the meet.

Several area athletes broke personal marks and won individual medals. Results from the meet can be found by clicking the links on this page.
