Weightlifters from throughout the state joined forces this weekend to compete together as Team Minnesota at the USA Weightlifting National Junior Championships in Philadelphia.  The defending team champs once again brought home the team tiles for both the men’s and the women’s divisions!  Leading the way for the men was An Phan of Shakopee, earning a silver medal in the snatch, clean & jerk, and the total in the 56KG weight class.  Destiny Young of Armstrong was the top point scorer for the women’s team, finishing in 4th place in the 48Kg class.  Congrats to all who competed and represented Minnesota!
