I’d like to take a moment & belatedly congratulate all of the Maryland lifters that competed at USA Powerlifting Raw Nationals last week. 90+ state records were set or broken, and I’ve just approved them all in the database.
Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t take a moment & extend a HUGE thank you to my referees that volunteered their time and worked as Technical Controllers: Melissa Copeland, Ali Squiller, Brad Couillard, Heather Hoff & Allie Feras.
At one point in the competition, a Maryland or DC referee was working 4 of the 5 platforms as Technical Control, and 6 of the 20 State Referees that volunteered for the meet were from MD or DC. I hope that all of us that volunteered our time will consider climbing the ladder & becoming National Referees when the time is right.
Speaking of which, I have been contacted by numerous individuals in the week after the meet about becoming a State Referee for USA Powerlifting. If you’re interested, contact me & we can discuss the process.
