Talented Bowie High School powerlifter Saul Landaverde returned to give the Jackrabbits the spark they needed.
Down 60 pounds heading into the dead lift, Landaverde pulled out all the stops. Saul lifted 515 pounds, and Bowie garnered the 4th Annual Chico Invitational with 34 points, which was two better than Bridgeport.
“He battled and pulled 515,” said Bowie powerlifting coach Quentin Berend, “and that helped us win the meet.”
Cristian Martinez and Bret Davis also claimed weight class gold medals for Bowie at 132 and 198 pounds, respectively.
“Bret Davis had a personal-best day for us, and he’s just a sophomore, which is a good sign for us,” Berend noted.
Some of the top girls’ powerlifters from Montague County put on a show as well.
Kylie Robinson hoisted a 300-pound dead lift for Bowie en route to winning the 123-pound class, while Nocona 220-plus performer Deziray Graham shattered existing meet records in the dead lift, squat and overall total.
Bowie claimed second at the meet with 30 points, with Kennedale taking top honors (32). Read more in The Bowie News.
