Port Isabel Lady Tarpon powerlifters Franchesca Sandoval and Jocelyn Padilla have qualified for the Texas State Powerlifting Meet in Corpus Christi.
Lifters qualify for state competition by placing in the top two at the regional meet, or by registering a total lift that at least equals a pre-determined qualifying total. Padilla and Sandoval both made it by surpassing the qualifying totals for their weight classes.
The Girls Region V Powerlifting Meet was held last Saturday in Carrizo Springs. Padilla placed fourth in her class and Sandoval was sixth. The Girls State Powerlifting Meet will be held at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi on Friday, March 18.
