HOPKINSVILLE – Debate among Kentucky schools diminished the number of teams at Saturday’s state powerlifting championship, but Trigg County still had to earn its way to another state title against some tough competition.

And the Wildcats did just that.

Trigg finished the event with 96 points, clearly ahead of the pack. Greenwood scored 79 to take second place, Hopkins Central was third with 54, and host Hopkinsville scored 47.

Trigg’s only individual champion was senior Dillon Cionko, who won in the 165-pound class with 535 pounds lifted. Cionko tied for the second-best power clean in his division at 245 pounds, but his bench press of 290 pounds was 20 pounds higher than the next-best lifter.

Cionko was also named the meet’s outstanding lifter among those 125-175 pounds.

Four other Trigg lifters competed in that division, as well – Blake Kostrzebski (fourth, 270 bench, 205 clean), Jaron Gilbert (eighth, 200 bench, 200 clean), Nick Watkins (11th, 190 bench, 170 clean) and Austin Durham (13th, 180 bench, 155 clean).
