Catti competed at Nationals, she got through Squat, but Bench caught her....
We are really proud of her and she had a great year. 10 meets has thoroughly worn her down, but she is just a sophomore.
Thank you everyone for your support.

Nate Caballero had a great meet. He had a 1520 total
Nate took 7th out of 18 lifters and was 20 pounds out of medaling. He had a great season!
Girls' State Competition
Catti Rock got the 2nd place medal at state on March 15th and had an awesome meet.
It was an exciting day as the top 5 girls all were within 5 pounds of each other going into Deadlift. Catti had a great meet and had a solid shot at 1st, but missed her last lift of 430 pounds on the deadlift. It was a great day and we are super proud of her. She has the National meet in two weeks and a chance to claim that first place prize.
