E-T Staff Report

For the second consecutive year, Lingleville High School will be represented at the Texas High School Powerlifting Association regional championships.

Joe Michael Sanchez has qualified for Saturday’s Division II regionals at Riesel High School, where he will compete in the boys 132-pound division.

Sanchez is ninth in the region after all regular-season meets, with the top 10 in each weight class qualifiying for regionals. He placed fourth at a meet in Hamilton last Saturday, posting the Cardinals’ second-highest finish of the day.

Jonathan Taylor was third at Hamilton in 114-pound division, while Michael Conatser, who just missed qualifying for regionals, placed seventh in the 132-pound class.
