The contest bar used had very little knurling and several veteran lifters had trouble with the grip. No worries, Jill is back and recently pulled a 405lb Raw deadlift easily!!!

Larry Hill drove over from Yakima and won the 50-54 Mens 198lb Division with a 405lb squat, 281lb bench and 501lb deadlift, great job Larry !!!

Best for last, Jack Rankin won the 65-69 Mens 181lb Division and hit a lifetime PR and State Record squat of 440lbs !!! He then benched 214 and deadlifted 435. After 20 years of squatting, he is still hitting PR’s !!! Great job to everyone !!!
