Team Minnesota Heads to National Juniors


Jr Nat 2014 logoSome of the top high school weightlifters in the state will be joining forces this weekend to compete as Team Minnesota in Aurora, Colorado at the USA Weightlifting National Junior Championships.  The three-day competition gets started on Friday with the lightest weight classes, and will finish up Sunday afternoon with the heaviest classes.  Despite competing against other juniors who might be as old as 20 years older, Team Minnesota has always performed very well at this meet, and have been great representatives of the state and our LWC.  This year should be no different.  Below is the list of Minnesota lifters who will be competing.  Best of luck to everyone.
