Lehman grabs gold at Lobo Invitational

Total dominance was the theme for the host Lehman Lobo boys and girls powerlifting teams Feb. 8 as they pressed the competition en route to winning gold at the annual Lehman Lobo Invitational. The Lehman Lady Lobos nearly pulled off a complete sweep of the awards stand, winning gold in all but two weight classes. It culminated with the Lady Lobos scoring 74 total points, which was 30 more than second place Taylor High. Meanwhile, the Lobo boys powerlifting team edged out Manor High by five points to claim the 2020 Lobo Invitational gold. All told, more than 20 teams and 400 athletes, including those from Hays, Johnson, San Marcos and Dripping Springs, participated at the Lobo Invitational, one of the largest powerlifting meets in Texas.
