LHS lifter names state alternate

Kaylee Melton (above) earned eighth-place at the Regional powerlifting meet in Temple. She placed in the 220-pound class as a freshman with a total of 695-pounds. 

She is the 2A/1A alternate for the State meet, which is being held in Waco. 

She did 240-pounds on squat, 140-pounds on bench press and 315-pounds on dead lift.

Teammate Aubrey Kellar had also qualified for regionals and placed 12th at the event. She made this accomplishment less than a year after a vehicle collission had broken her arms in multiple locations.
