Mustang lifters compete in Normangee


The Madisonville Mustangs’ powerlifting team competed on the road Saturday in the Normangee Invitational where they finished in third place.

“Some of the boys’ totals went up while a few others crashed and burned, but not without giving maximum effort,” Coach Olvera said after the meet. “The boys are working hard and several improved their totals with personal bests.”

Bryce Roundtree finished second, lifting 570 pounds in the 114-pound weight class. Tye Conger finished third, lifting 540 pounds in the 123-pound weight class. Nathan Chappell finished fifth, lifting 860 pounds in the 148-pound weight class and Joey Mclver finished first, lifting 1,250 pounds in the super heavy division.        

Madisonville travels to Fairfield Thursday, Feb. 23 to compete in the last meet of the regular season before regionals.
