Power lifting star junior Grayce Riley medaled at the state competition in Waco last weekend finishing in the top ten.

She lifted 400 on squat, 180 on bench for a personal best, and 330 on deadlift to place in the top 10 with a total of 910.

At the Regional meet held in Levelland last weekend Grayce was able to squat 405, bench 165, and deadlift 330 to give herself a 900 total. She improved 50 pounds from her Regional qualifying total.

“I am extremely proud of Grayce and how much she improved this year,” Coach Jarryd Taylor said. “She worked really hard all season and it showed with a well-earned trip to state.”
