The Open is officially over! We wanted to say congratulations to all that participated! We saw PR's and triumphs and lots of hard work! The CrossFit NOLA staff is extremely proud of you guys!
Wrapping up the week we have some winners to announce: Leigh Hester and JP Luckett are the highest male and female placing members, and have won a Rogue Econ Weightlifting belt sponsored by Kyle Ehrenreich and Kyle Ehrenreich Films. Great Job Guys!
Leigh actually did extremely well in the open and finished in 39th place in the South Central Region. This is a huge accomplishment, and be sure to tell her congratulations when you see her! Pending our video review week, she will have the option of competing as an individual at Regionals in San Antonio in late May.
Coach Mollie qualified for the masters regional workouts, to take place in mid April, with a 96th place in the world in women ages 40-44. She will have the opportunity to compete in the next stage of qualifying workouts. The top 20 in the next stage will move on to the finals in California in July! Mollie did great, considering she had surgery on both shoulders in the past year! Mollie's goal is to make it to the finals in 2015!
Coach Jeff finished 14th in the South Central Region, and also earned an invite to compete individually in San Antonio in May. Pending the video review week, this will be Jeff's 5th time at Regionals, where he has been 8th place the past 2 years. Jeff's goal is to finish top 3 and make it to the finals in California this year.
Last but not least, we turned in our best Team performance EVER! The team scores are the sum of the top 3 men and top 3 women for each workout every week. CrossFit NOLA finished 5th place overall! This is out of 341 teams in all of Texas Louisiana and Mississippi. This corresponds to 94th in the World out of 4237 teams. The CrossFit NOLA community can rest assured that we are not only the fittest gym in the city of New Orleans, but also the state of Louisiana and one of the top 100 in the world. This score will ultimately drop when Jeff's and potentially Leigh's scores are removed, but we are proud of it anyway! We will be sending a team to regionals to compete for a top 3 spot to get to the finals in California in July. Contributing Scores to the team on various weeks were Jeff, Leigh, Chad, Liz, Brandon, Ryne, Brad, Aaron, Kelsey, Alyse, Andrea, Megan P., Lexi, and Vil. Great job to everyone!!
We know there is a lot more to celebrate since we saw so many PRs during the Open, so if you want to give a shout out to someone, post to the comments! We will be recognizing more people for their hard work and accomplishments in the coming days/weeks!
