A pair of Wise County lifters posted top-15 finishes at the Texas Woman’s Powerlifting Meet in Corpus Christi last weekend.

Decatur’s Gabbi Buchanan just missed out on a medal in the 220-pound class, tying for fifth with a total of 900 pounds. Hillsboro’s Nikki Green took the medal with a one-pound difference in body weight.

Buchanan squatted 380, benched 175 and pulled up 345 on deadlift.

“She did great,” said Decatur assistant powerlifting coach Heath Tullous. “She increased her total and moved up from seventh.”

Bridgeport’s Karen Serafin brought home 14th in the 123-pound class with a total of 625 pounds.

She lifted 245 on squat, 135 on bench press and 245 on deadlift.

“She had her best meet of the year,” said Bridgeport coach Gerald James.
