In April I competed in the APA Raw Nationals in Defuniak Springs, Florida for my first major event. It was my first meet where I had more than 2 other women, though none in my weight class. Due to the morning of weigh ins (we got to Florida at about midnight) I weighed into the 165# class, which was fine by me. I knew I wouldn’t set any national records, but I did set 4 state records for Mississippi. I also won my class, which was a really cool feeling. I ended with a 297 squat, a 325 deadlift and a 136 bench press.
