We recently had six lifters compete in the Indiana Weightlifting State Championships on May 18th. The lifters posted some great numbers and several brought home first place trophies. In fact, one of the our lifters, Christy Cox, brought home lifter of the meet!
Also, out of all six lifters there were only two misses (34/36) the entire day, which is a great accomplishment. In a weightlifting meet there are two lifts – the snatch and the clean and jerk. Each lifter gets three attempts at each lift for a total of six lifts.
Here are our lifters and the numbers they hit at the meet:
Christy Cox – She competed in the Junior class at 69kg. She won first place and lifter of the meet with a 65 kg Snatch and a 85kg Clean and Jerk.
Kevin Cox – He competed in the 14-15 age division at 90kg. He won first place with a 70kg Snatch and a 90kg Clean and Jerk.
Tariq Qureshi – He competed in the Senior division at 77kg. He won first place with a 57kg Snatch and a 75kg Clean and Jerk.
Ryan Peters – He competed in the 16-17 age division at 85kg. He won first place with a 85kg Snatch and a 110kg Clean and Jerk.
Mir Mahmood – He competed in the Senior division at 69kg. He won first place with a 52kg Snatch and a 70kg Clean and Jerk.
Will Reilly – He competed in the Senior division at 94kg. This was Will’s first meet and he went 3/3 with a 70kg Snatch and a 92kg Clean and Jerk.
Way to go everyone!!
Congratulations to the team!
