Great stuff. Why did they use the bench and not the snatch?

it's sort of a mix between oly and powerlifting competition. i don't know what led them to chose those movements. C&J is total body, exhibits power, total body strength, overhead stability. bench exhibits raw upper body strength.

Jessica Reynolds, the lady shown in the first photo in the article, trains about 4 or 5 miles away from our gym
I have recently spoken with her coach, Jon Hampton, and hopefully they will be able to be at our Strongman Seminar this Saturday.
There are some fantastic female weightlifters around this area.

i think it's fabulous. i wish there were more high schools that promoted competitive strength sports. i feel like the competition there is more focused inwards, instead of towards another team. sometimes team sport rivalries get really nasty.

IMO, the bench is the most widely known strength lift. The CJ is the "king of lifts". That and the snatch is the more technical, harder to master lift and with HS students you gotta give them something they can easily succeed in.

It's just nice to see O-lifting getting more exposure especially with women.

A record of 235lb bench and 205lb clean and jerk…that’s just freaking awesome for anybody IMHO. And to see this being done by a high school girl is really spectacular.

I like how they did a close up of the one girl with the pearl necklace. If shows that they can be athletic and still feminine.
