Below is a summary, submitted by powerlifting coach Jeff Brown, of Kelsey Maltos’ success at the Regional Powerlifting Meet. Congratulations to Kelsey for all her hard work and dedication.
EHS Senior Kelsey Maltos qualified for and competed at the Texas High School Women’s Powerlifting Association’s Regional Meet held last Saturday at Forney High School. Kelsey placed 2nd in her weight class. In finishing as the silver medalist, Kelsey set a new regional record in the Squat by lifting a personal best of 425 lbs. Kelsey also had a grand total of 900 lbs for the three lifts, which is also a personal best for her. Most importantly, the second -place finish automatically qualifies her to compete at the state meet, while her total of 900 lbs. was 105 lbs. over the minimum total needed to qualify independent of her place finish. Kelsey will represent Eustace ISD at the state powerlifting meet to be held on March 19-20 in Corpus Christi. Please congratulate her on a terrific season, and wish her well as she continues to train for the final meet of the year.
Also, a special thanks to Coach Brown for sharing this information and for his work with Kelsey.
