“I have been really impressed with how dedicated the girls have been the last couple of weeks in practice,” Lady Coyotes head coach Chris Anderson said. “And that hard work has shown up in the meets. Some of the best powerlifting teams are here in North Texas - both boys and girls - and for us to be able to compete with them is a huge credit to our girls. We have great senior leadership, talented young lifters and lifters who are respectful of the sport and represent their school with integrity and pride. Hopefully, this will carry us into regionals on Feb. 26th.”


The Anna girls lift at Howe on Feb. 14 then begin preparations for the regional meet, also at Gainesville.
