Lady Dawgs collect four regional medals

Burnet junior powerlifters Brailey Hall and Jayci Craig were all smiles with their regional bling. Hall, at left, won the 181 class in Region II for the second year in a row and finished fifth at the finale in 2016. Craig twice collected regional bronze, 132 class freshman year, and 148 class sophomore year and was a state alternate each time. She cleared the qualifying hurdle in 2017 with a silver finish. Craig also added her name to the regional record books with a 165 pound bench press. The two qualifiers are excited to make some state memories on March 17.
