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!

Big crowd for the final lifts at Moorhead!!!
