Default Adding more squats to the CA WOD?

I have entered a competition with a friend on who can get to a 100kg squat the fastest. Right now I'm at 80kg. My friend's at 60kg, but he's also a dude and will be making beginner gains.

I'd like to program for this competition, but not adopt an all-squats, all the time program and sacrifice my Olympic lifting work. Right now I'm following the CA WOD--would there be a good way to hybridize it with a squat-building program to help increase my squat numbers faster? During the Bulgarian cycle I already add a few extra sets whenever squats come up to make up for the fact my poor technique means the squat and clean percentages are not as challenging as they should be. Should I do more? Just stick with the program? What do you recommend?
