BLHS girls run streak to 11

February 26, 2009

The winning streak continues for the Basehor-Linwood girls powerlifting team.

The Bobcats won the West Franklin Powerlifting Meet on Saturday, running their winning streak to 11 straight meets.

Melissa Seaman won the powerweight division. Kayla Peterson was named the Lightweight Lifter of the Meet after defeating teammate Baily Cross by hundredths of a point. There were many seconds and thirds as well, showcasing the team’s depth.

“It was a really good day,” Schwisow said. “With 380 kids and for our kids to help do that well, it got them excited.”

The Bobcats have been dominating in tournaments this season.

Earlier this season, BLHS sent six girls to a meet in Emporia and won the title.

“We won the meet with six girls because all of them placed so high,” Schwisow said. “We have got girls that are going in and winning the division and then setting goals to do other things, like setting a goal of going for records. They are going out and doing stuff that has not been done before.”

In boys competition, the Bobcats finished in second place, losing to Humboldt High School by eight points. Humboldt beat Basehor-Linwood handily earlier in the season, and Schwisow said he was pleased to see his team close the scoring gap.

“We had lost to Humboldt by a lot more earlier in the season, and so it is a sign that our team has gotten stronger,” Schwisow said.

Up next for the Bobcats is the state tournament on March 7 at BLHS.
