Lady Eagles win by two, Eagles fall by two, vs. Clovis

PETER STEIN/NEWS-SUN

The Hobbs power lifting team had one last chance to compete before the state tournament beckoned.

Saturday at the Hobbs High School Multi-Purpose Facility, the Hobbs boys and girls teams both competed against rival Clovis. The Hobbs girls prevailed by two points while the Hobbs boys lost by two – the Lady Eagles won 50-48; the Eagles fell 48-46.

For Hobbs head coach Deloyd Landreth, it was two solid showings – both the win and the loss.

“I’ve been happy all season,” Landreth said. “We have consistently every meet gotten better and better and better. Same as last year; I thought our progression throughout the season was great. I feel the same this year.”

For the Lady Eagles, getting a win right before state was huge.

“The girls team this year is really deep,” Landreth said. “We have a lot of really good lifters all throughout the divisions we have. They have won all three of the meets this year that we’ve hosted. Today was a close one.”

The Eagles have also been successful this season, despite Saturday’s narrow defeat.

“Our boys have won two out of the three meets this year,” Landreth said, “so they’ve competed really well.”

The Lady Eagles had wins by Briseida Salazar (114-pound weight class), Trinity Vasquez (132), Magdalena Silva (181), and Trinity Hill (220).

Second-place finishes for the Hobbs girls were notched by: Abry Munoz at 114 pounds; Brooke Davis at 132; Ivory Rico at 148; Kaila Gonzales at 198; Lilliana Cortez at 259, 165 to 259+ bench press, and 165 to 259+ dead lift; and Vasquez in the 97 to 148 best lifters, best lifts squat, bench press, and dead lift categories.

Third-place finishers for the Lady Eagles were: Davis in the 97 to 148 best lifters and bench press categories; Munoz in the 97 to 148 squat category; Mayte Trevizo at 132 and in the 97 to 148 dead lift category; Cortez in the 165 to 259+ squat category; and Savannah Fisher in the 165 to 259+ bench press and dead lift categories.

And in the 165 to 259+ dead lift competition: Silva was sixth, Cottingham ninth, Hill 10th, and Gonzales 11th.

In the boys competition, Oliver Hill and Kylar Pickering earned three first-place finishes each for the Eagles – Hill in the super heavyweight class, the 198 to super heavyweight squat, and the 198 to super heavyweight bench press; Pickering at 308, the 198 to super heavyweight class, and the 198 to super heavyweight dead lift category.

Clark Teagan and Justin Black won two events each for Hobbs. Teagan won at 148 and in the 114 to 181 bench press category; Black won in the 114 to 181 squat and dead lift categories.

Also winning for the Eagles were: Andrew Torres at 181, and James Grandits at 198.

Teagan notched two second-place showings, in the 114 to 181 best lifters class and 114 to 181 best lifts squat category. Armando Holguin was second at 198.

Third-place finishes for Hobbs were posted by: Torres in the 114 to 181 best lifters and dead lift categories, Black at 148, Jayden Collins at 275, and Pickering in the 198 to super heavyweight squat.

Max Alvarado was fourth at 148.

As the state meet approaches, Landreth thinks that Cortez, Fisher and Vasquez have a chance to at least medal. And he thinks Hill and Pickering could be battling for state championships.

“I’m excited,” Landreth said. “We’ve got multiple kids right now that are sitting in the top five spots, three girls sitting in medal contention positions. On the boys side we’re sitting in a similar situation.”
