Crosby powerlifter wins 4A state title

By BOBBY HORN JR.
CROSBY– Crosby High School and the sport of powerlifting has become synonymous following the recent success of one of its lifters.
After putting in a record-breaking effort at the Region IV meet, Alex Goudeau did not let up at the March 16 Texas High School Women’s Powerlifting Association state meet. Goudeau set a new personal best and broke a state record on her way to capturing the state championship in the Class 4A- 198 lbs. division.
Powerlifting is comprised of three events: dead lift, squat and bench press. The cumulative total of the three is used to determine the winner.
Goudeau set the bar high as she opened the meet with a 430 pound squat, which broke the state record. Earlier this year she broke a Region IV record with a 400 pound squat.
She then bench pressed 195 pounds. Her deadlift of 360 pounds gave her a total of 985 pounds. This was 65 pounds better than the second place finisher.
The 985 pounds total also marks a personal best for Goudeau. Her previous personal best was 965 pounds at the Region IV meet, which was also a record beaker.
