The girls weightlifting team had their last meet and Senior Night on Nov. 28 against Winter Park. They had a close win of 43-40. Overall, they went 4-0. Seniors Hannah Dotson, Kendall Ruiz, Kiana Fernandez, Chelsee Martino, and Sharon Carrillo participated in their last regular season meet. There was somewhat of a struggle, but ultimately the team came together for the victory.

“Overall, it was something that needed to happen. Coming off of Thanksgiving break, we weren’t in that environment of being in the weight room together and pushing each other. The results weren’t pretty, but we did get the win, and that’s what was the most important thing at the end,” Coach Cabrera said.

Though the outcome was close, the girls kept their energy up and had fun celebrating Senior Night.

Senior Chelsee Martino won the 129 weight class and ended the meet with a personal record of 115 in the clean and jerk.

“It was an amazing night, and I did really well, and I’m proud of myself,” Martino said.

She hopes to exceed districts and place at regionals and states as the postseason begins.

Now it is time for the team to start working towards metros and districts. It will be the first time for some of the players, and they are anticipating the tournaments that really matter.

Last year, the team had 3 regional qualifiers and one state qualifier.

“I’m hoping to maybe double those numbers to where I have at least six to seven girls going to regionals from the district level, and hopefully two or three going to state,” Cabrera said.

Above all, the team is focusing on pushing each other to improve and do their best in the tournaments to come.
