Please join me in congratulating Coach Tony Castillo and our Women’s Powerlifting Team on a fantastic inaugural season. This group has been working hard every morning and both of these young ladies have represented Ennis well in competition.
Leah Harris , a senior at EHS, set a regional record at the Region 3 powerlifting championships, held at Longview Pinetree HS yesterday, for her 210lb. Bench Press. That’s not a misprint. 210 lbs!!!! Leah’s overall total in the squat, bench press, and deadlift, awarded her a 2nd place finish in her weight class. This means that Leah will travel to Waco on March 21st to represent our Ennis Lions at the State Meet! What a significant accomplishment to be the FIRST ever female powerlifter in Ennis HS to qualify for the State Meet and to be the Regional Record Holder for the Bench Press! Wow!
Freshmen Lindsay McManus came into the Regional meet yesterday ranked 12th in her weight class. She also had an outstanding day of competition and finished 7th in Regional competition, knocking off many competitors that were ranked higher than her at the beginning of the meet. Pretty outstanding for a freshmen athlete who also is experiencing the sport for the very first time. We look forward to 3 more years of Lindsay competing for the Lions!
