17.1 Intramural Open Recap

Congratulations to everyone for competing and surviving week one of the 2017 CrossFit Open! This community never ceases to amaze us with the efforts you guys bring forth in the face of these challenges. 17.1 was a doozy and we are proud of all of you who took it on with minimal complaints (until Saturday when we were all whining about our sore posterior chains). Thank you for a great week one and on to the next! Here are just a few highlights from week one:

– we had 97% of the people signed up for the Open actually submit scores for week 1! That has to be some kind of record so kudos to you all for doing the work and putting it up in the internet!

– I am splitting week 1’s spirit points in two parts. 3 points for NapTown School of Liftcraft and Wizardry for the shirts and props I saw all day long and the amazing swole Dumbeldore sign. Drunkin’ Donuts will receive 2 points for bringing in donuts and booze on Sunday to Open Gym for post 17.1 snacks #whyweworkout

Team Name Results:

Shannon and I paired up to decide the winners of this year’s team name points

1st place (10pts): NapTown School of Liftcraft and Wizardry. Very creative and Harry Potter was an essential piece of my childhood.

T 3rd place (6pts): Drunkin’ Donuts. I love donuts and alcohol is fun. Plus this has a pun.

T 3rd place (6pts): Three Legged Down Doggers. I teach yoga and my fur baby has three legs. You get points for sucking up and will lose points if you do not use Tibbs as your official mascot and put him on a t shirt.

T 3rd place: Sour Snatch Kids. This is the most tasteful snatch pun I have ever seen.

5th place: Tropic Like it’s Hot. I feel like I am missing a joke here and someone has to be last #sorry





1st Place: Drunkin’ Donuts 97 Points

2nd Place: Sour Snatch Kids 78 Points

3rd Place: Three Legged Down Doggers 69 Points

4th Place:  NapTown School of Liftcraft and Wizardry 53 Points

5th Place: Tropic Like it’s Hot 41 Points

NOTE: scores may change slightly as the final count on Judges Course completions come in
