OSSEO, Minn. — They're raising the bar. 

In just their second year as a team, the Osseo girls weightlifting team claimed the state title. 

For most of these athletes this isn't their main sport, but they quickly learned the technique of Olympic powerlifting and more traditional weightlifting. 

It's an unprecedented degree of success and the Orioles are only getting stronger by the year.
