Rodriguez earns top five finish


Madisonville powerlifter Corban Rodriguez represented the Mustangs and earned a fourth place medal at the Texas High School Powerlifting Championship in the 220 pound weight class with a total of 1,580 pounds.

“Last season, (Corban) placed 10th in the same weight class with a total of 1,430 pounds,” said Coach Lu Olvera. “When he missed that final attempt in 2018, he committed himself to put forth the work ethic required to earn a top five finish at the THSPA Championship in 2019. The rest is Mustangs history.”

Coach Olvera would like to thank seniors Rodriguez and Desmond Walls for their exemplary traits of character, discipline and grit.

The powerlifting team also features a number of underclassmen who impressed this season and will be back in 2020.
