With the close of the CrossFit Open we would like to name team Red Hot Reppers as the 2018 Intramural Open Champions! It was a close race between Sour Snatch Kids and RHR at the end but RHR, led by team captain Veronica Jackson, pulled away in the final week thanks to winning the weekly spirit award!

Thanks to all of our athletes who participated this year. I think this past Open was one of my favorites to be a part of. Seeing people push themselves to new limits under the support of other members is what it’s all about. I wanted to highlight a couple of people for their efforts over the past 5 weeks.

  • Big Joe – He came to us at 430+lbs a few years back. This year he was able to do 8 kipping pull-ups in WOD 18.3.
  • Coach RJ – RJ came in 250th in a region that gets more competitive every year. She improved from last year’s 295th place.
  • Audrey M. – Even with a few bumps and bruises she completed all the workouts and even won the scaled title one week.
  • Alex R. – This guy’s wife delivered a baby on a Thursday and he was at the gym that Sunday to make sure to get the workout in.
  • Our high school athletes – Thomas, Jimmy, and John. Way to show up and put in work each week. It’s not easy being the youngest in the gym but you guys held your own.
  • Wayne S. – Wayne is the lightest he has been since high school and he killed it in the scaled division after coming so far over the last year. Next year will be RX all the way!

Great showing everyone and I’m already looking forward to next year!
