Team Louisiana to South Regional

We started training together summer 2015, with the goal of making it to the 2016 CrossFit Games.  We spent nearly every week together, grinding, working and getting better. We decided to name ourselves Team Louisiana, because as of yet, there has not been a CrossFit Games qualifying team from our state, and if we make it, we wanted to represent something the whole Louisiana CrossFit community could get behind. We have gotten past the first stage, the CrossFit Open.  

The team members are:

Jodi Kennedy
Kelsey Briner
Alyssa Lafont
Chad Becnel
Jeff Germond
Phil Guilliot

The next stage is the South Regional in Dallas, TX.  The South Regional runs May 13-15, where we will be jumping into a  stacked field of 40 teams.  The field even includes 3 others from our state! We are rasing money to support our trip to Dallas.  Travel, food, and hotel costs over a regional weekend of add up quickly and we need the support of our community! Any little bit helps! 

We are incredibly thankful for all the support that we have recieved from friends, family, athletes, CrossFit communities and even out of state supporters!  We are excited to leave everything on the floor in Dallas!
