(VALLEY VIEW) – With the Region 5 Powerlifting Meet just two weeks away, some Donna High Powerlifters are doing everything possible to increase their totals in order to try and qualify for regionals.
Five lifters were able to not only increase their totals, but also hit PR’s and moved up in the regional rankings in their respective weight classes as well after competing in this past Thursday’s Valley View Region 5 Qualifier.
Tyler Salazar and Marcus Ysaguirre helped their cause tremendously as they finished second and third at the qualifier. But that wasn’t the biggest thing that they accomplished because Salazar hit a 1010 which was his PR and moved up to eighth in region in the 123-pound weight class.
As for Ysaguirre, he moved up to 11th in the 132-pound weight division with a PR total of 1020.
Jose Guzman, Ryan Perales and Isaac Rangel were the final five Donna High lifters to hit PR’s on the day and placed 12th, 9th and 19th respectively on Thursday.
Anthony Yenscencio and Rogelio Rada also made the trip to Valley View and took 19th and 12th place in their weight classes.
