Garcia places second at state powerlifting meet

Alvarado senior David Garcia placed second at the state powerlifting meet on Saturday.

Garcia, coming off a regional championship, finished with a personal best total lifting weight of 1,835 pounds.

Garcia spoiled what would have been a perfect run by the first place lifter from San Antonio Holy Cross when he benched a new state record 565 pounds, topping the old record by 30 pounds.

Garcia also set his own personal best in the squat with 705 and tied his best deadlift with 565.
