Three members of CrossFit Martha’s Vineyard scored medals at a competition held in Mashpee Saturday, in the 40-plus masters division and in the pre-master 35-to-39 age division.

More than 35 athletes from six CrossFit gyms participated. The Vineyard was well represented.

Workout events included a half-mile run–back extension–sit-up combo and a wheelbarrow sandbag/burpee relay.

Three members of CrossFit Martha’s Vineyard stepped to the podium. Sara Hill Mass of Vineyard Haven won overall for women, Hudson Maynard of marion but most recently from the Vineyard won for 50-plus men, and Sean Slavin of Chilmark came in third in the 40-to-49 age men’s group.

David Spooner and Andrea Della Russo of Vineyard Haven just missed reaching the podium.
