Snow (Powers) Charpentier and Nicholas Saccente drew the spotlight at the Summer Solstice Open at NoRisk CrossFit in Smithfield, RI June 19, 2016 (Meet Director: Judah Boulet). Lifting in 53 Kilos Class, Snow upped her own Clean & Jerk mark to 96 kgs. By dint of equaling Amy Richardson‘s Snatch Record of 72 kgs. in this meet, Snow also acquired the Total Record with 168 kgs. Snow had been away from our scene for a while to compete in CrossFit Games. Way to go, Snow!
Nicholas, age 24, resides in Massachusetts (currently lifting for Waxman’s Gym in CA). He recently took 8th Place in the 105+ Kilos Class at the US National Championships. In Smithfield he achieved a Snatch of 155 kgs., C&J of 190, with Total of 345 kgs. The previous Snatch Record of 150 kgs. “merely” dated back 37 years!! A very good day for Mr. Saccente![GENERAL NOTE: The New England Records are always subject to revision if new, verified information comes to my attention. –GL]
