The night belonged to the ladies, two of our Youth Lifters performed very well in a meet like competition. All lifting was under the supervision of Head Coach Joe Micela. 12 year old Kylie Price Snatched 37 kilos and Clean & Jerked 45 kilos for a 82 kilo Total. 89 kilos was first place at last years Youth Nationals in the 48 kilo class with some more training she will be in range of the top girls.
Youth Pan Am Team Member Kaija Bramwell also had a very good day. Kaija hit a PR Snatch of 62 kilos, this is just 2 kilos under the current American Record of 64. In the Clean & Jerk, she made 78 kilos with a close miss at 81 kilos. 82 kilos is the current Youth American Record. Kaija is knocking on the door for all the Youth Records in the 53 kilo weight class.
Andrea Sieler had a really good day as well. Andi Snatched 66 kilos 1 kilo under her best. She made strong attempts at 69 kilos but it was just a little out of position on this day. Andi came back in the Clean & Jerk and hit a new Personal Record of 85 kilos. The Jerk was extremely solid. She took a couple cracks at 87 kilos but like the 69 in the Snatch they were just a little out of position. Andi works her butt off and it shows. Bigger and better weights are in her future.
Keep pushing it ladies Coach Micela is very proud.
