Sixty-two high school powerlifters took to the racks for the annual Joshua Owl Invitational and those student-athletes from Waxahachie and Midlothian gave the field all it could handle.

Though Burleson High took top honors with 40 points Thursday in Joshua, Midlothian just missed the top spot with 38 points. The Panthers had two first-place finishers, three second-places and four other top-five lifters.

Waxahachie tallied 34 points after one first, three second and seven other top-five finishes to place third.
