Tuesday was the last day for affiliates to validate scores for the 2012 CrossFit Open. So today the scores are official and CrossFit Santa Cruz had a tremendous showing. Nearly 80 athletes from the gym participated in the competition, setting aside time each week to prepare and give it their all. Most did things they did not know they were capable of doing, and we did it together rain or shine each Saturday.
• Our team finished in 5th place in Nor Cal, earning us a spot at the Regional, May 18th-20th in San Jose.
• Dave Leys and Jesse Baz finished 46th and 34th respectively, earning them individual bids to the Regional.
• Cara Hipskind and Danielle Edmundson finished 36th and 24th respectively, moving them on to regionals as well.
• Laurie Galassi finished in 3rd place overall with standout performances in Workout 12.3 (2nd place) and Workout 12.5 (1st place) and moves on to Regionals with a legitimate shot at qualifying for the Games in July.
The CrossFit Open was a great first test on the road to the CrossFit games and the crowning of this years fittest. Great Job to all of our competitors and congratulations to our athletes moving on.
