Competing in the USAW Regional Championships event in St. Louis, Missouri the weekend of April 30-May 3, MacKenzie Roy of Rumbler WL in New Hampshire surpassed the New England Snatch mark held by Robinson WL’s Carly Mauch. The record in Senior Women, 75+ Kilos Class, now stands at 87 kgs. Congratulations, MacKenzie!
Several other New England lifters competed in this event, part of a new approach to giving USA lifters the opportunity to qualify for national/international events. Notably, Kathleen O’Neill (Robinson WL) took 2nd place in Women’s 63 Kilos Class with a total of 170 kgs. and Gunnar Mattson (Rumbler, NH) took third in Men’s 105 Kilos Class (his Total of 290 was only a kilo shy of the 2nd place finisher). Congratulations on these fine showings!
