This year’s debut at the Massachusetts Rhode Island State championships will be a great test for the team’s novice lifters. The meet has 80 lifters slated to compete and two other collegiate teams. Northeastern will be sending 8 of their best novice lifters: Heather Crocker, Anna Padilla, Raquel Guss, Liam Krahe, Zac Cohen, Michael Roncarati, Adam Lewandowski and Scott Caplan. This meet not only has the pressure of placing well but the opportunity to join the rest of their teammates and qualify for Collegiate Nationals.
The team will do their first meet of the ’09-’10 school year at Next Level in Johnston Rhode Island. A few new faces will be getting their first platform experience, as they try to make the roster for collegiate nationals in April.
