The 2008 ND State meet was smaller than usual because of injuries and illness but we had some really good young lifters. Rob
Bryant of St John brought some really strong high school lifters. Jesse Finch continues to climb the national ranking in HS girls.  
Jared Gatzek of Minot gets better every time he lifts in a meet. Wes Mathews of Velva had great debut with 1162 total at 181.
Bob Brunner had the biggest bench of the daywith a fine 480 and nice 650 deadlift
