CORPUS CHRISTI - Lady Cat Brenda Sustaita competed at the State Power Lifting meet at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi on Saturday, March 16.

It was a great honor for her to be among the best lifters in her weight class from across the state. Brenda finished tied for 10th place, and lifted a total of 720 pounds, her best total lifting weight by 15 pounds. Brenda posted a personal best on two of the three lifts in the competition.

She squatted 300 pounds (20 pounds over her previous best) and bench pressed 150 pounds (5 pounds over her previous best). On her final lift of the day, she attempted 300 pounds on dead lift, which would have been 20 pounds over her previous personal best of 280. She came very close to completing the lift, but couldn’t lock it out.

Had she completed that lift, she would have had sole possession of 7th place. The State Meet was the end of a dream season for the first year power lifter.
