CFSBK Open Intramural Team Competition: Final Rankings
The 2017 CrossFit Open is over. So is the 2017 CFSBK Open Intramural Team Competition. PSYCH! It’s not over because, like last year, there’s a tie for 1st place. You guys are annoyingly good.
After WHAMRAP! claimed sole ownership of first place last week, each and every team member legally changed his or her name to George or Andrew. This good-luck charm seems to have worked, as the team posted 41 points in Week 5, their highest score of the year. But is wasn’t quite enough as 2 Legit 2 Quit channeled the power of the Hammer and matched that score. Anyway, say hi to Coaches George Fox and Andrew Myers next time you see them.
This year, we awarded teams bonus points for participation based on the total number of Open Workouts each team completed. This proved to be the difference for Snatch Me If You Can, who finished the year in 3rd place. All in all, everyone put in an outstanding Week 5 performance, with no team scoring lower than 46 points. Cheers to everyone!
Jeers, however, to Los Snatchos team member Jay R., who proved that the rumors of PED use that have been plaguing him all season are true when a kettlebell slipped out of his hands and sailed across the gym during Tuesday night’s Anti-Gravity class. Which is the PED that enlarges your head but shrinks your hands? Jay is doing that one. Luckily, nobody was injured by this tiny-handed terror.
Stay tuned to the blog to find out how we’re going to break this here tie!
