The King of the Hill Throwdown went down today and was a huge success. CrossFit West Santa Cruz and CrossFit Los Gatos had 10 teams combined, including 2 Rx’d teams each. It was a nail biting event that featured a team AMRAP 10 min of “2 min defense” (1 Power Clean, 3 H.Cleans, 2 Jerks) a Max Deadlift, and a Classic Weightlifting/gymnastics team couplet- Snatch, Pull Up (80,60,40). CrossFit West Santa Cruz Team 1 took 1st place in all three events. However, CFLG team 1&2 took 2nd and 3rd respectively, while CFWSC team 2 took 4th place. Being a dual meet between boxes (not just top team, winner take all) the scoring system resulted in a tie. So it came down to combined RX’d team totals.
Scores were combined from the two Rx’d teams from each box. The results were suspensfully close. CFWSC took WOD A by just 1 round (69 vs.68)! CFLG took WOD two by 100lbs! So it came to the final WOD… CFWSC took WOD C 7:44 to 8:52!
Both young CrossFit Boxes proved their depth, intensity, and camaraderie today. Fun was had by all- athletes, spectators, kids, Mowgli- and we couldn’t be happier to have all had a chance to CrossFit our faces off.
I’d like to give a special thanks to all of those who helped judge- Kyle, Jason, Shane, Leah, Cliff (sorry if I’m forgetting anyone- I was behind the camera all day! And to all of those who came just to cheer everyone on. We gotta a speciall thing, CFWSC and LG! Great job everyone.
CrossFit West Owners Cliff, Jocelyn, Sam soak up the competition.
