Ironstone Wins Title on Final Lift

It was quite an afternoon at Hubtown yesterday as the top two teams in the NSWL went head to head for the League Championship.

Just a single point separated the teams after the Group 1 snatches, but disaster struck for Hubtown in Group 2, with league veteran Chris Tufts missing all 3 of his snatches. The Truro side didn’t give up, however, and a clutch third attempt clean & jerk by Jevan McNutt put Hubtown back in the lead and put all the pressure on Ironstone’s Brandon Blenkarn, who had missed his first two clean & jerks.

With the title on the line, Brandon came through on his third to hit high score on the day and win it for Ironstone with a league record total.

Congratulations to Ironstone on becoming our inaugural league champions, and to both teams for a great match and a great season.

Championship Final Set to Go

The date has been set for the Championship Final of the Nova Scotia Weightlifting League.

Sunday, October 29th at 3:30 pm, at CrossFit Hubtown.

Undefeated Hubtown will be looking to take the first ever league title at home in their brand new facility. But they will have their hands full with the team from CrossFit Ironstone, who will be looking to avenge a regular season defeat in our closest and highest-scoring match of the season.

It promises to be a fantastic finish to our first season, so get out and support these teams and see some great lifting.

Ironstone Clinches Playoff Spot With Win Over Renfrew

The NSWL regular season came to an end last night as Crossfit Ironstone ventured out into the wilds of Hants County to take on the Renfrew Crew. Renfrew put up their best score of the season, led by top lifter on the night Gabriel Auclair, but Ironstone showed their depth in picking up their second win of the season, and securing a spot in the finals as a result.

Both teams overcame the humid conditions to put up some good totals in front of a nice crowd at Renfrew, and Gordon, Michael and old pro Keri did a great job loading.
