2017 Holiday Meet Recap


2017 Holiday Meet Recap

Thank you, thank you, thank you! To all our volunteers (who are pretty much warriors), coaches, and athletes–we want to say thank you for such a great holiday meet. Without your support, we would not be able to put this event on year-after-year.


Congrats to all who competed! We look forward to seeing you next year. While we will detail the podium below, please check out everyone’s hard work here: Results

The unsanctioned women’s session started us off with a bang, with Emily Frid placing first (150kg total), Taneil Sisco placing second (109 total), and Kelsey Johnston placing third (114kg total)

The action continued with Becky Werle (194 kg total), Jen Torrent (122 kg total), and Mikinzie Nelson (124 kg total) putting on a show and taking first, second, and third place respectively.

After warming up the platform quite well, the guys took the stage and the unsanctioned men did not disappoint. Josh Karabetsos put up a huge 228 kg total to take first, while Joshua Bryant placed second (184 kg), and Jeremy Williams (180 kg) took third in his first ever weightlifting meet.

To wrap up the day, the sanctioned men came out to put on a show; with Jared Fleming placing first with a 310 kg total, Paul Buono placing second (184 kg total), and Matt Fuller placing third (268 kg total).
