Philip Rocha breaking school records in his weight class (123’s) for the squat (305lbs) and bench press (170lbs);

Santos Yanez 132’s school record bench press (180lbs);

Braxton Creager 181’s in the bench press (260lbs)

Harley Simpson Squat (600lbs- overall school record), Total (1320lbs)

Alek Garcia 275+ Squat (555lbs)

If you haven’t seen it yet, there is a video of Harley’s 600lb squat on my Facebook, it’s one of my prouder moments as a coach for a kid who battles in the weight room every workout.

I will follow up shortly announcing our boy’s regional qualifiers.

Thank y’all very much & God bless
