This is an article from the Aug. 18, 2014 issue Original Layout

C.J., a freshman at Beaufort High this fall, became the youngest lifter—at 14—to set a senior U.S. record with a clean and jerk of 153 kilograms (337.3 pounds) in the 62-kg class (136.7 pounds) at nationals in Salt Lake City. Earlier this year he won the all-around titles at Youth Pan Ams (62-kg) and youth nationals (ages 14 to 15, 69-kg).

Caitlynn Moon | DeKalb, Ill. | Swimming

Moon, who will swim for Texas A&M as a freshman this year, won the 1,500-meter freestyle at YMCA long course nationals in Indianapolis in 16:40.05, smashing the YMCA record (below college level) by 19.42 seconds. She also set a YMCA mark in the 800 free (8:49.29) and won the 200 free (2:02.62). Moon competes for the DeKalb County Swim Team.

John Driscoll III | Ridgewood, N.J. | Golf

John, 13, an eighth-grader at George Washington Middle School this fall, beat Garrett Mooney (Westfield) 5 and 4 to become the youngest golfer to take the New Jersey State Golf Association's boys championship. A week earlier he won the New Jersey Junior PGA University Open, shooting a career-low 66 at Princeton's golf course, followed by a 77 at Rutgers.

Brooke Wilmes | Johnston, Iowa | Softball

Brooke, a freshman shortstop at Johnston High, hit a second-inning grand slam, drove in five runs and scored four times to lead the Dragons to a 10--2 victory over Southeast Polk High for the state 5A championship. Named captain of the all-tournament team, the rising sophomore batted .538 this season and was a repeat all-state selection.

Gabriel Wittosch | Duluth, Ga. | Fly-fishing

A rising freshman at Georgia, Wittosch won gold at the world youth championships on the Dunejac River in Nowy SƒÖcz, Poland, to lead the six-man U.S. team to victory in an eight-team field. He caught 59 trout and grayling, the longest measuring 46.1 cm (18.1"), for 41,520 points. The U.S. reeled in 262 fish, 72 more than runner-up Poland.

Kristen Gillman | Austin | Golf

Kristen, a junior-to-be at Lake Travis High, shot a tournament record 16-under 268 to win the Junior PGA Championship at Miramont Country Club in Bryan, Texas, by 11 strokes. She held sole possession of the lead in every round and earned a spot on this year's U.S. Junior Ryder Cup squad. Kristen has verbally committed to Alabama.
