Parents and patrons of the Madill powerlifting program gathered in the weight room at Blake Smiley Stadium Thursday night to watch the iron 'Cats lift in an effort to raise money for the program to purchase new, additional equipment.  Local lifters asked for pledges on how much weight they could accumulate with lifts in the categories of bench press,  squat and dead lift. And as of Monday the group had raised approximately $2000. 
Madill recently earned third place as a team and was first among 3A schools at the Antlers meet. Madill competes in the large school division, 3A and above, and the 'Cats have a chance to win a team title next month.
Anatolio Ibarra claimed his third individual division title at the Antlers meet and picked up the Outstanding Lifter of the lightweight category.
The regional is set for Saturday (March 5).
