Lions in state lineman challenge

The Dublin Lions will be competing in the State Lineman Challenge, hosted by Hardin-Simmons University, on Saturday at 9 a.m. The offensive- and defensive lineman-type athletes will be competing in a strong man-style competition with eight events, such as tire flip, sled push and obstacle course.

Teams will earn points to take the team championship. There will also be a tug-of-war that teams compete in for points. 

At the qualifying event, also hosted at Hardin-Simmons, the Lions placed fifth overall, had the fastest time in the sled push and the second fastest time in the tire flip and power drive. Ethan Price has the most bench press reps for an individual in the whole qualifying event, benching 185 pounds 31 times. Hardin-Simmons has hosted four qualifying events around the state, including Abilene, DFW, Houston and Austin. 


Teten named All-State shortstop

Dublin Lion Tim Teten was named a shortstop for the All-State third team. 

“He is more than deserving of this award,” baseball coach Kellen Cervetto said. “We are blessed that he wears Dublin across his chest because there are only a few players that get all-state.”

The junior was honored at the all-district level as well for his contributions to Dublin’s defense. 

“Tim is one of those players that makes coaching simple,” Cervetto said. “He comes to practice with a work ethic that is contagious to the other players. Tim is a very humble individual, though. He will gladly take a team award rather than an individual award just because of who he is.”

Cervetto said Teten is only the second player in Dublin history to earn a place on the All-State team. 

“We are very proud of Tim,” he said. “He is a true talent and  very gifted individual.”

The Lingleville community wished them well in a send-off Thursday afternoon as they headed out to the event.
