Team ABC at SCS Regionals!

Team ABC Boulder Adidas SCS Regionals Sport Climbing 2013

We are very proud to share that Team ABC Boulder took 13 first place finishes at the Sport Climbing Series Regional Championship at the Boulder Rock Club this weekend!

The full category results are not yet published online, but we will share them when we have them.

Team ABC also came in 2nd overall for the team championship. The Team Championship is the combined scores from sport and speed from the team’s top competitors in all categories. Because Team ABC is missing Female Junior in Lead and Female Junior, Male Junior, and Female Youth A for Speed, we got zero in those categories (out of a potential 100 points per, or 400 total points we were unable to compete for). Team ABC crushed it and almost overcame the huge deficit for 1st overall, but in the end we were down 20 points and took a still proud 2nd place.

Great job to all ABC athletes for all their hard work!

Team ABC at The Spot Gladiator Finals!

Megan Mascarenas Gladiator Finals 2013 SBS 8 Women's Final by Katrin Bell

Team ABC put in a great showing at The Spot Bouldering Series Gladiator Final last weekend. Over 30 ABC kids competed in the youth and adult sessions, and 5 qualified to compete in the open final! Matt Lubar actually qualified for the men’s open final as well, but he tweaked a muscle a bit during the redpoint round and he decided to rest up for upcoming nationals, so he opted out. In his place Remi Arata was the 8th man to compete in Open Finals. For the women, Megan Mascarenas qualified in first overall, Margo Hayes qualified in 4th, Isabelle Goodacre qualified in 5th, and Laurel Todd qualified tied for 7th with The Spot’s Tika Anderson. Page Kuepper and several other photographers were on hand to take photos of the event, so head over to The Spot’s facebook page to check them out if you haven’t already. Thanks everyone for coming out and thanks to The Spot for another wonderful season!

Team ABC, are you getting psyched for the Hueco trip? Check out this cool video of Coach Obe from Hueco this summer:

Team ABC at Psychedelia!

Many Team ABC athletes competed at The Spot Bouldering Series’ black light comp, Psychedelia, on October 20th. This event happens every year and is a ton of fun as The Spot puts up all kinds of cool features to climb on, everybody wears costumes, and the tape art is fantastic!

This year 4 Team ABC athletes climbed well enough to compete in the single open final problem. Isabelle Goodacre, Laurel Todd, Margo Hayes, and Matt Lubar all got in to the 6-person, 4 minutes per climber finals. The problems were crazy–the men’s went up several large volumes on the front of the Font boulder, and the women’s went through two hanging dog bones and across a rolling tube on the front of the Hueco boulder.

Isabelle and Laurel both climbed through the dog bones and tube and fell trying to hold a difficult swing to hold 10. Margo fell her first try on the first move, then got back on and made it through the problem to the top out. The crowd went crazy. First-place qualifier Nina Williams came out after Margo and also sent the problem in two tries, taking first as she qualified higher than Margo. Margo got 2nd, and Spot Team Coach Tiffany Hensley took 3rd. Laurel took 4th, Isabelle 5th, and Hailey Bridgewater 6th.

For the men, Matt Lubar was the first competitor to top out the boulder and the crowd went wild. First place qualifier Ben Hoberg also finished the problem, putting him in first and Lubar in 2nd. Greg Setiz took third. More here: Psychedelia 2012 Pro Final Results « The Spot Route Setting Blog
