On March 18 Tressa Reading competed at the Texas High School Women's State Powerlifting Meet.  Around the state of Texas there were 288 lifters that competed in Tressa's weight class.  Only the top 12 advanced to the State competition in Waco.

Tressa ended up finishing 10th with a combined total of 625 pounds, her best total of the year.  At Waco Tressa squated 265 pounds, bench pressing 135 lbs, and dead lifting 225 lbs.  All three lifts are totaled to give her her 625 pound best.

Tressa's first meet of the year was in San Antonio back in January.  At that meet she lift a combined total of 565 lbs.  Coach King is very proud of of Tressa for her 60 gain throughout the three month lifting season.

Tressa is only a freshman, so she has three more promising years in the sport before graduating from high school.  We look forward to see what Tressa does in the upcoming three years.

Tressa is the first person to go to state in powerlifting in Knippa history.
