Week 2017.10.30

The 2017 USSF Fall Classic is in the books, and it was a great day! Lots of PRs were set, and many congratulations go out to everyone who stepped onto the platform to compete this past Saturday. Also, thank you to those of you who helped out at the meet – setup, teardown, judging, spotting, loading, scoring, announcing – without you, this meet wouldn’t be possible.
