CrownTown Community at the Battle of the Boxes team competition in Upland at CrossFit Kinnick on Saturday. Garrett M., Spencer F., Carly R., and Melissa I. teamed up together for the first time and competed against 20 other Advanced teams. They finished in 7th place out of 21 teams. A top 1/3 finish is very good, but what’s really impressive is that they earned a 2nd place finish in the second WOD, and set a fifty second improvement over their practice run one week prior. The only team that finished ahead of them in that workout was the hosting gym’s team who finished 1st place and only beat them by 2 seconds. Every second counts!
Regardless of their placing, the entire CrownTown community is very proud of these four for their great representation. A great display of dedication, consistency, and hard work during the weeks of training leading up to the competition. If you missed seeing them in action, don’t worry they are scheduled for two more in the next month in a half. Check the ‘Upcoming Events’.
