Jackets Powerlifters Show Some Muscle at Cleburne Invitational

The Jackets Varsity Powerlifting team showed some muscle at Thursday’s Cleburne High School Invitational, led by senior Richard Cuellar who was the gold medalist in the Super Heavy Weight Division.

            Cuellar, who was a lead defender for Jackets football, logged 1,485 pounds in total lifts, putting him in the first place spot and fourth in Region 2, Division 1, based on current rankings.

            Sophomores Matthew Lacy and Wesley Free were also among Cleburne’s top lifters. Lacy placed fourth in the 148 pound class, with Free finishing fourth in the 165 pound class.

            It’s the Lady Jackets turn at the weights on February 1 as Cleburne hosts a meet for JV and Varsity women, starting at 4 PM in the Indoor Practice Facility.
