San Benito's Leann Ramirez makes Team USA Powerlifting team, set for World Championships

VIDEO: San Benito's own Leann Ramirez can now call herself a member of Team USA Powerlifting.

The Greyhounds graduate and incoming UTSA freshman won gold in the USA Powerlifting Meet last month, setting a new American record of 1,119 combined in squat, bench and deadlift.

Despite bringing home the gold, Ramirez says the score was not her best possible score.

Her sights are now set on South Africa where she will compete in the World Sub-Junior and Junior Powerlifting Championships.
