The champs during the final event. PJ, Matt, Erica, and Ashley bring home the gold.

The 4th Annual Santa Cruz Affiliate Cup was an absolute blast. Giant kudos and thanks to CF Santa Cruz for hosting a truly top notch event. After hosting last year, we know exactly how much work goes into putting on a competition of this size and caliber, and CFSC flat out killed it. Great job, guys. CrossFit 831 will host next year.

CrossFit West was well represented with 8 teams in the competition–2 Advanced, 5 Intermediate, and 1 Masters (50+) team. The results were astounding. When the dust settled on a great competition, West occupied 4 of the 9 podium spots, including a 1st and 3rd in the Advanced, a 3rd in the Intermediate, and a 1st in the Masters divisions!

While I am absolutely thrilled with winning, especially in the face of such excellent competition from the other local affiliates (the final showdown between West and SC took a couple years off my life, it was so exciting and nerve-wracking), I am equally happy that all 5 West Intermediate teams finished in the top 10. That’s the very definition of depth and a credit to the hard work of the CFWSC coaches and the community of excellence, support, and ability that permeates the gym.

Congratulations to everyone.
