Local teen wins first amateur body building contest

Leanne Cisneros was nervous until she walked on stage.

She dry heaved several times and suffered some mild anxiety on the almost six-hour trip from Fredericksburg to the Dallas Convention Center for the Europa Games on June 19-20 to compete in a National Physique Committee body-building contest.

Cisneros could not stop shaking back stage before going on for the first time in an event.

But when it was all said and done, she beat four other girls to win her first-ever body building competition at the age of 17.

“Confidence is something they say you have to have,” Cisneros said. “They even say, ‘once you go on that stage, even if your knees are clanking, you have to put on a personality.’ That’s something that helps you win. Judges don’t like a girl that’s hiding in the back. The confidence comes from knowing you worked hard.”

Twenty Fredericksburg High School football players will head to the 7-on-7 state football tournament for the first time in Fredericksburg’s history Thursday and Friday, July 9-10, at Veterans Park and Athletic Complex in College Station.

Fredericksburg will begin tournament play in Pool H, where they will play Decatur, Childress and Falls City.

Pool play begins at 1 p.m. against Falls City, a Class 2A DII program.

Fredericksburg will then play Decatur, a 4A DII school, at 3 p.m. and Childress, which competes in 3A DI, at 5 p.m.

Jake Sears, an FHS alum who coaches the 7-on-7 team since UIL rules forbid coach involvement, thinks the boys have a good chance of going far in the tournament as long as they focus on what they do best and not on their opponents.
