Brewer Powerlifter Takes Third Overall at Regionals
Brewer High School senior Arnold Delgadillo won third overall at the Regional Powerlifting Meet and set a personal record with a 920 lb. total.
Delgadillo holds all of the school’s records at the 123 lb. weight class, and he broke two of his personal records during regionals. He shattered his previous best of 350 lbs. on deadlift with a huge pull of 380 lbs. and upped his 895 lb. total to 920 lbs.
“Arnold will be leaving the Brewer powerlifting program as one of the most decorated athletes to ever go through the weight room,” said Coach Mike Dunn.
“In Arnold’s three years of competing, he won 10 invitational meets, three district meets, and placed in two regional meets. He has definitely set the standard for future Bears in powerlifting.”
