Commissioners Court celebrated the accomplishments of PSJA Memorial Early College High School senior Victoria Treviño who received her school's first state championship title, bringing home first place in the 165-pound weight class of the Texas High School Women's Powerlifting Association.
"This is the perfect ending to a high school career," said PSJA Head Coach Miranda Guajardo. "She was iffy about joining powerlifting, but every year she grew stronger and more confident. That's what we wanted."
At the state meet, Treviño also won Outstanding Squat, setting a new record of 445 pounds, and Outstanding Lifter, with a combined total weight of 1,050 pounds.
"We are very proud of all that you've accomplished," said Commissioner David Fuentes - Hidalgo County Precinct 1, who sponsored the resolution.
In addition to being a top athlete, Treviño is also committed to academics. She will graduate in the top 20 percent of her class and with 60 college hours from South Texas College.
"Thank you for recognizing me," said Treviño. "I appreciate being recognized by Commissioner Fuentes and this court, and by my school for my accomplishments in becoming the first powerlifting champion."
Treviño plans to attend UTRGV and major in Business Accounting and Finance.
