Lifters headed to nationals

Trece Frank, returning 2012 National Champion, and Madisyn and Devan Heaney will be at the Olympic Weightlifting competition this coming weekend in St. Joseph Missouri. These athletes will be coached by Ernie and Eddie Hodges. At the Caledonia Last Chance meet in March, Frank broke all three of her current state records in the snatch, clean-and-jerk and total weight lifted. Her lift of 63 kg in the snatch and 77 kg in the clean-and-jerk were both new records, and the total weight of 140 kg is also a new state mark.

Madisyn Heaney lifted 37 kg in the snatch and 52 kg in the C&J to win the JV 58kg female weight class in March, and Devan Heaney won the JV 62 kg class with lifts of 56 and 80 kg and will participate in both the state and national meets.
