The first annual Moorhead High School Weightlifting Meet was a great jump start to the sport of weightlifting on the western side of MN. This competition had a mixture of North Dakota lifters as well as Minnesota competitors. We did have to share the fieldhouse with a few weekend basketball games, but it turned out to be a huge positive for our event. Many of the basketball spectators stopped to watch the event and encouraged our athletes. It was a very electric atmosphere. With the smaller number of competitors, many of our athletes walked away with a medal and most of them achieved some personal records in both of their lifts. The Moorhead Spud athletes are all working hard with the Minnesota State meet in mind. Hopefully a few more can get qualified. Overall, great meet and we expect it to be even bigger next year. Thanks to all of our volunteers and judges!
