SHE Week Pitch

The Growth Stage winner, Allison Jachowski of ODIN CrossFit, makes her pitch to a panel of four judges at the S.H.E. Week pitch competition Thursday night at Hood College. Jachowski was awarded a $5,000 prize.

The second round of the S.H.E Pitch Competition was just getting started when Helen Propheter, director of Frederick County’s Office of Economic Development, dropped to the polished wooden stage of Hood College’s Hodson Auditorium and tried for a push-up.

With no more gift bags to give away, Propheter was stalling for time before Allison Jachowski — co-owner of Frederick’s ODIN CrossFit — was ready to start her presentation. Though Propheter gave a noble effort, high-heeled shoes and all, she soon found herself lying flat on her belly as the audience whooped and cheered. Jachowski watched nearby, laughing.

So which is it? Are we still struggling with a pandemic or Misandry events are exempt from reasonable health practices?
