We had a great day yesterday at the Utah State Weightlifting Championships.   We had 4 athletes from the gym lift.   Berg had a record setting day making 5/6 lifts and hitting a 220 pound snatch PR and a 268 pound clean and jerk to take first place is his division and set three state records in the process.   Ariel put together a 6/6 performance also hitting a PR snatch of 220 pounds and then hitting a PR clean and jerk of 275 pounds in only his second meet ever.   Megan Briscoe hit a 132 pound snatch and a 185 pound clean and jerk in her first meet ever to take third place in her division and qualify her for the Collegiate Nationals.  Matt Young hit a 226 pound and a 275 pound clean and jerk to take third in his division.   If anyone is interested in the sport of weightlifting talk to a coach about it or come to our weightlifting class Wednesday nights at 5:30 or Saturday at 8am with Berg.
