3rd Annual Scott Wheeler Push/Pull Meet

We with the Scott Wheeler 5051 Foundation wanted to take the chance to thank everyone for the overwhelming support the Foundation received over the past weekend before, during and after the 3rd Annual Scott Wheeler Push/Pull Meet. The meet was a total success. We had almost twice the number of lifters as we have ever had and even more spectators on hand than any previous meet. I know the Mr and Mrs Wheeler and Tracy were yet again touched by the support that was shown for Scott and the incredible foundation named in his honor. I personally am touched by the way we don’t just say, but we show “We Will Never Forget”. The day was kicked off by Mr Ken Ulman coming bye to wish all the lifters luck and to say hello to Wheeler Family. From that point on we had 4 hours of intense lifting inside the Colosseum Gym, while great food was being sold by Jenna Green of our Records Section and the many many kids on hand were being entertained by the bounce house provided by Jay Frischetti of Keller WilliamsRealtors. We finished up the day with the awards ceremony and after a few recalculations I’m happy to announce the winners: Women’s Dead Lift: Kalle James-Wintjen Women’s Bench Press: Ashley Weber Women’s Master Bench Press: Mary Levy Women’s Open and Law Enforcement: Kalle James-Wintjen Men’s Dead Lift: Zack Cerrone Men’s Bench Press: Mike Nolan Men’s Master’s Law Enforcement and Overall: Kevin Costello Men’s Open Law Enforcement and Overall:Mark Reid Again congrats to all lifters and thank you to everyone for the support....
