LCM Bear Iron powerlifters win at West Brook
The Little Cypress-Mauriceville Bear
Iron Powerlifting Team brought some of their top lifters to the West
Brook Bruin Invitational on Saturday. The meet was comprised of 250 of
the top lifters in the region. Eleven of the 12 team members that
participated earned medals.
Kelly Kaufman and Travis White
finishing in 5th place, Coleton Boudreaux coming in 4th, Simone Mullins,
Cameron Allen, and Zach Thomas finishing in 3rd place, and Patrick
Herfurth coming in 2nd.
Those winning their individual weight
classes were junior Maygan Crosslin – Girls 165’s, senior Nick Dockens –
Boys 165’s, senior J.C. Fontenot – Boys 198’s, and junior Mitchell
Jennings – Boys 220’s.
The LCM boys team managed to hold off more
than a dozen other schools to finish atop the medal count and bring
home a first place trophy for their efforts. This is quite an
accomplishment with the level of talent that is at the West Brook meet
year in and year out.
Coach Reed said, “We could not be more
thrilled with how well our kids are performing. We knew we had a chance
to win the boys meet at West Brook, but it takes everyone going out
there and performing at their best.”
When asked who stood out at
the meet Coach Reed replied, “Everyone knows how strong J.C. Fontenot,
Nick Dockens, Maygan Crosslin, and Raven Cole are (all ranked in top
three in the state), but some standouts Saturday were Mitchell Jennings,
Coleton Boudreaux, Cameron Allen, Travis White, and Patrick Herfurth in
the boys division and Kelly Kaufman and Simone Mullins on the girls
side. These kids are really coming into their own as lifters and are all
on track to be regional qualifiers if they keep up the good work. They
are doing a phenomenal job.”
