Amidst all the moving and gym set-up craziness we failed to give a shout out to Coach Kate a few days ago for her solid performance at the SPS Championship this past Saturday.  Kate took the competition platform and went 2 for 3 on the snatch and (a dramatic) 1 for 3 on the clean & jerk, coming back from a missed opener and second attempt to post a 144kg total under some serious pressure.  Nice job, Kate!

It wasn't a PR day for Kate but given the fact that she's been helping so much with the gym's move and set-up, coaching classes, and handling her day job(s), a performance like this - among some of the best lifters in the PWA - is definitely impressive under the circumstances.

Props also to Coaches Hillary and Liz who, as usual, were on-site at the meet to help Kate and handle the coaching of her warm-ups and attempts (an important job at any weightlifting meet).  All three of them were of course back at AR shortly thereafter to be their general awesome selves, jumping in to move things and direct traffic during the transition chaos. 

Great work, Squirrel, and thanks for sharing your strength with our community in more ways than one!
