Lady Tigers lifters register five top-five finishes


With a 750-pound total to not only lead her team and finish second in the Edna Invitational in the 259-plus pound weight class, but Sabrina Terrill also launched herself to the top spot among qualified lifters Region 2 after just her second meet of the season.

Last year’s lone Lady Tiger representative at the regional championships, Terrill is back to replicate those results with this group of teammates, four of whom joined her in the top-five in their weight class in Edna to collect a seventh-place overall finish in the team race.

Broccisha Williams and Mackenzie Kollman finished back-to-back in the 132-pound weight class to score three points for the team, totaling 1,020 pounds lifted. Melanie Nieto added a fourth-place spot from the 181-pound class with a 640-pound total while Avy Infante registered fifth in the 220-pound class with 600 pounds lifted.

Altogether, Sealy lifters combined to lift 4,520 pounds to help finish second in their division with 11 team points, behind only Bay City’s 15 team points.

Four of Terrill’s teammates used last weekend’s totals to jump into the top-20 of the regional rankings, with Infante (13), Williams (14), Nieto (17) and Kollman (19) making strides in their weight classes. In addition, Cash (21) put herself right outside the top-20 with still more time before the Feb. 22 deadline to qualify for regionals.

The Lady Tigers will have this week off and will return to the competition platforms next Thursday, Feb. 6, at Rice Consolidated High School in the Swamp Strength Invitational.
