Javelina alumni return for competition

Two alumni of Texas A&M University-Kingsville are due to come back to Kingsville Saturday, July 21, for the first Bodybuilding and Fitness Show on campus at Jones Auditorium. Even though the show is not sponsored by the university, two staff members, electricians Silver Chapa and Larry Garza, are coordinating the event.

Javelina alumnus Ron Thompson will be a guest poser for the event. He is known in the bodybuilding world as Black Angus and is a National Physique Committee contender. Another alumnus Ovidio Arevalo, history teacher/coach at Roma High School, also will be at the event. Arevalo is strength and conditioning coach for the Roma football team and also coaches baseball.

The event will begin at 8 a.m. with events like a health screening, nutrition testing, aerobics and a car show. The bodybuilding and fitness competition will begin at 7 p.m. Admission for the day events is free, but tickets for the body building show will be $25.

Organizers are seeking male and female bodybuilders to compete in the contest with an entry fee of $35 per person. They also are looking for sponsorships from local businesses and individuals for $50 each.

For more information about the day’s activities, call Garza at 361-228-0967 or Chapa at 361-455-3347.
