2019 Cornhusker State Games

The 2019 Cornhusker State Games is Saturday July 20!

The Cornhusker State Games will be at Lincoln Northeast High School(Map to school) This space provides us with more space for spectators (the gym seats 3100), updated air-conditioning, and the weight room is across the hall!  Note: There will be concessions at the school! 

The list of lifters with preliminary weight classes is located here.  Please review this to make sure you are entered correctly – contests, weight class, raw or equipped.  If you want to change something – please let me know by e-mail.

We will be using a different program to run the meet.  You can access the results during the meet.  The link is here:

If you are willing to help with set-up on Friday or with the meet on Saturday please let me know.  We will be running 3 platforms with almost 150 lifters and that will require a lot of help!  We want this to be a fun, well judged, and safe meet that ends at a reasonable time.   Thanks.
