January 22, 2013Franklin Community High School
Six Franklin athletes competed at the 15th Annual Northwest Indiana Weightlifting Meet on Saturday, January 12th, 2013.
Over 350 athletes from across the state of Indiana came to compete at Hobart High School.
Placing for the guys were:
Tony Mathews, 7th out of 66 athletes in the 165lbs. weight class
Cole Edwards: 12th out of 43 athletes in the 198lbs. weight class
Alex Claxton: 8th out of 43 athletes in the 198lbs. weight class
Austin Ramsey: 9th out of 43 athletes in the 198lbs. weight class
The girls division had no weight classes, only by grades.
Mia Cano weighed in the lightest in her division, but still finished 4th place in the Junior Girls Division to earn top 5 honors.
And the star of the show was lil' Zoey Piotrowski!
Zoe beat out over 34 girls from around the state to capture the best female lifter by bodyweight MVP award in all 4 categories. She was best female bencher by bodyweight, best female power clean by bodyweight, best female deadlift by bodyweight, and best overall total by bodyweight.
This was the first time in the history of the 15 year meet that any lifter, male or female, was able to dominate and capture all the MVP titles!
Congratulations to all athletes who went and competed!
