On Saturday, March 16th, Forney Lady Rabbit junior Sadie Hewitt won the 5A State Championship in her 220 lb. weight class at the Girls State Power Lifting Meet in Waco, Texas.
Overall, Ms. Hewitt lifted a personal best grand total of 1,100 lbs. (485 Squat, 205 Bench Press, and 410 Dead Lift) to win the State Title.
She finished just 10 lbs. ahead of the 2nd place finisher in her weight class—a Ms. Brenda Lopez of Pharr Valley View High School.
So, it was a tight and emotional battle between these two worthy athletic warriors but in the end Sadie Hewitt emerged victorious. Sadie’s 485 lb. Squat Lift is a new State Record in this event for her weight class.
Ms. Sadie Hewitt now joins Jelisa Smith and Mikayla Durham as Girl State Power Lifting Champions from Forney ISD.
Congratulations to you Ms. Sadie,and Well Done on bringing home the Gold!!! This salute is for you indeed.
