That changed Saturday. Hunter Ostenson, Jayden Micas and Cody Nacht each missed their squat lift attempts at the state power- lifting meet at Columbia High School in White Salmon, eliminating them from the competition. "The judging on one of the racks was really difficult, taking our lift- ers deeper than parallel so we had a couple guys not get their lift in the squat," head coach Lorna Martinson said. "That depth judging for squat is tough to judge and is subjective. We just didn't adapt to how deep the judges were taking us on those racks. We take pride in our squat technique and depth and it has been a focus in our weight room ever since these young men started powerlifting for us, so for that to happen was very frustrating." Without those three lifters in the competition, Shelton fell behind Mon- tesano to take second place with 32 points. Montesano won among 19 schools with 48 points. The High- climbers finished ahead of Newport in third with 31 and Omak in fourth with 30. "For most of our team, we had an outstanding meet," Martinson said. "On the boys side, their second-place finish was driven by some amazing record-setting performances." Senior Jayton Rasmusson won the 123.-pound weight division, setting two school records. His total lift was 920 pounds. He set the SHS school records for his weight class in the squat at 345 pounds and in the bench at 230 pounds. He lifted 345 pounds in the dead lift. Rasmusson lifted the third-best bench among all lifters. He was cho- sen as the sixth-best overall lifter among all boys. Winning the 181-pound weight di- vision, senior Kris Woods also set a school record. His total lift was 1,315 pounds. Woods set the school record for his weight class in the dead lift at 515 pounds. He lifted a 485-pound squat and 315-pound bench. Among all of the boys who lifted, Woods lifted the 10th-best squat, fourth-best bench and second-best dead lift. He was named the third- best lifter among all competitors. At 220 pounds, senior Daniel Diaz set the SHS school record for his weight class's three-lift total at 1,390 (545, 320, 525). Diaz fmished the meet in second place. Diaz had the eighth-best squat lift among all boys. Additionally, senior Chris Schwisow lifted the seventh-best bench. He took sixth place in the 148-pound weight class with a total lift of 905 (300, 255, 350). The Shelton girls team tied for sixth place with 11 points. Montesano also won the girls meet with 55 points among 18 schools. "We had five girls who fmished tied for sixth as a team, which is amaz- ing," Martinson said. Senior Felisity Brush was the highest-placing Shelton girl. She took third in the 97-pound weight class with a total lift of 435 (135, 95, 205). "Felisity attempted a 220-pound dead lift on her final lift in an attempt to break our school record," Martin- son said. "Sh6 got it half-way up, but just couldn't lock it out." Felisity had the fifth-best deadlift among all the girls who competed.
