We had several first time lifters and they all did very well. Will Fogarty had a really
nice bench of 245 in 181 teen class.  Dan Hoornaert of Hillsboro did a double by lifting
a fine 305 in the bench and running sprints in track.  Merly Greenley was a very
strong lifter with his 325.  Keith Berger, in his first meet at 60 years young, had a
impressive 250 bench. Young Josiah Roise just keeps moving his bench up every
meet, Josiah had an outstanding 260 bench at only l6 years of age. Veteran lifter
Tracy Larson did a strong 365 lift.  Tracy is still recovering from surgery and will be
back to old lifts in a few months.

Edith McDonald, lifting in her first meet, overcame a bout of nerves and had a fine day.
Edith will become a good lifter as time goes by.  Ryan O'Neil fought 400 lb  for new personal
record.  Rod Kenny was doing track and powerlifting at the same time, he was really hurried
to get both events done.  Matt Reed, lifting in first meet, was quite impressive with 300 lb
bench and very easy 500 deadlift. Matt took a shot at 560 and got in going off the floor.
Keep up the good work, Matt.
Gary Clock benched 435, his pr this year.
Thanks to Jason Blackburn of ASK Fitness for providing a great venue to lift. Special
thanks to our great volunteers, Doreen Clock, Kathie Eslinger, Justin Clock, Jenn Kegley.  
Our judges, Bill Johnson, John Apland, & Bob Brunner did a fine job.  Our spotters, Jason
Blackburn and  friend      did a great job keeping lifters safe.
