Jha’Niah Johnson, had a fantastic season, but unfortunately she was not able to get a squat in and she bombed out of the meet. She is already chomping at the bit to get back to the State meet next year as a senior, I have no doubt she will be back better than ever."

Jocelyn Gonzales, capped off a short but extremely successful powerlifting career, with a bronze medal! She had a record setting day for Big Spring High School, she set the school record on her total with 1000 lbs!! She set personal records on Squat with 395, Bench with 185, and Deadlift with a whopping 420lbs, she was inches away from a state record pull of 445 lbs! Jocelyn will be sorely missed mainly for the fact of her steadfast leadership within the powerlifting program.
