The Bronco Powerlifting Team traveled to McCamey on Saturday, February 8, to compete in the Badger Invitational. The Broncos showed up ready to lift and hungry to compete.


The highlight of the day came when Rino Hernandez was forced by another lifter to attempt 400 pounds on deadlift in order to medal. Rino, more determined than ever, pulled 400 pounds and took home a 5th place medal.


In total, 13 Broncos lifted in this meet and Sonora brought home a total of 7 medals.


Very Impressive for a young team.
