MEET RESULTS

Lebanon Valley Spring Record Day

The Lebanon Valley Spring Record Day was a big success! Five lifters set 23 new USAWA Records. 89 Year old Art Montini   started things off with some great Finger Lifts, and things just kept getting better from then on. We had 69 year old Barry Pensyl  from Easton, 36 year old Michael Rabich from Queens, New York , 22 year old Kohl Hess back in action, and last but not least,  13 year old Aidan Habecker doing some great Vertical Bar Lifts. Newcomer Michael Rabich did some great deadlifts and a difficult lift I personally had never seen done before, a Pullover and Press with  Wrestler’s Bridge. He did 60 Kg. [132 Lbs] on that lift.  After the lifting Judy treated us to some good food, as she always does.

Presidential Cup

By Denny Habecker

2016 USAWA PRESIDENTIAL CUP

The 2016 Presidential Cup was a huge success. We had the biggest turnout yet. Seven lifters lifted and set 21 new records. We had lifters ranging in age from 13 year old Aidan Habecker to 88 year old Art Montini, who always amazes us with his fine lifting at his age. Barry Pensyl, a great all-round lifter from the past came back and did some fine lifts with ease. Dean Ross, who seems to never miss a meet, did 5 nice lifts and big Frank Ciavattone came down from Mass. to do some great Ciavattone Deadlift records. Judy Habecker was also inspired to do a Ciavattone Deadlift record. Aidan continues to show improvement every day and did a big Vertical Bar Deadlift- 2 bars, 2″, breaking the previous record by over 40 pounds.
