Butte’s Sampson, Spencer lift big in Texas

AUSTIN, Texas — Young Butte weightlifters Beth Sampson and Mia Spencer posted top-10 performances at the Youth Nationals competition, which was held Thursday through Sunday at the Austin Convention Center.

Sampson placed fifth in the 13U 58-plus kilogram division in the event that drew competitors from around the United States. Spencer placed ninth in the 14-15 53 kilogram division.

Sampson will be an eighth grader at East Middle School next school year. Spencer will be entering her sophomore year at Butte High School.

Both weightlifters qualified for Youth Nationals at the Grough-Karchut Weightlifting Classic last fall at CrossFit Belgrade.

They will continue training at Copper City CrossFit in Butte with an eye on a return trip to nationals.
