Frank’s Barbell Club Record Day 8/15/2016.
Nice warm day in August in New England, Great day for a team meet… This team meet was not as large as our last team meet with 5 lifters, but we had three very impressive rookies. The rookies all from Frank’s Barbell Club were: Kim Lydon, Tony Patterson, and Mark Raymond. The two veterans were: Rocky Morrison and Frank Ciavattone. We had a few spectators that cheered on the team. Officials for the meet were Jeff Ciavattone, Joe Ciavattone, Frank Ciavattone, and official in training Rocky Morrison.
Kim Lydon in her first competition was very impressive. She left everyone saying “she made that look easy”.
