The Madill powerlifting team just recorded its' best regional finish in seven seasons by claiming the Class 3A team runner-up spot among large schools in Antlers March 1. This effort was propelled by Fermin Lafitta grabbing the gold in the 145-pound class and picking up the outstanding lifter in the lightweight division award. Jese Valeriano stood at the top of the podium in the 168-pound category once again with his first-place finish. Gavin Anderson finished fourth at 123 and Luis Salazar finished fourth at 275. 

Ty Butler has also received an at-large bid for state at El Reno later this week.
