Our boys powerlifting team qualified 9 lifters and 2 alternate this year for the Regional Powerlifting Meet at Bishop High School. We’ll have the biggest team we’ve ever had as we make the run to hopefully claim a third regional championship.
132 Weight Class:
Manny Padilla, Junior
Best Lifts: Squat-455 Bench-235 Deadlift-465
Manny will lead our team with experience not only competing at the highest level, but as a former Regional and State Champion. His success boils down to a few simple factors- self-discipline, heart, and a relentless attitude. He is a competitor who knows what he wants, makes a plan to go get it, always follows through and we expect nothing less from him this year.
