HIGH SCHOOL POWERLIFTING: Bowie’s Landaverde grabs sixth

Bowie High School senior Abraham Landaverde finished sixth in the 148-pound weight class at the Texas High School Powerlifting Association Division 3 boys’ state meet.
Landaverde put together a three-lift total of 1,160 pounds, including a squat of 460 pounds. He also produced a 430-pound dead lift and a 270-pound bench press at the Taylor County Expo Center in Abilene.
“That was his highest weight total of the year,” Bowie head boys’ powerlifting coach Quentin Berend said.
Berend said Landaverde also was one of 18 boys to receive a $1,000 THSPA scholarship to further his education.
Eli Rodriguez from Seagraves won the 148-pound class. Read more in the mid-week Bowie News.
