Fifteen Navarre High School girls – all of the Lady Raiders who competed Wednesday in the district meet at NHS – qualified for the 2013 Florida High School Athletics Association weightlifting finals to be held Feb. 9 in Kissimmee.
Each team was allowed to enter up to 15 lifters in the competition; the top three in each weight division qualified for the state meet. Lifters from Northwest Florida schools will have another chance to qualify or to improve their rankings at a sectional meet Jan. 23 at Choctawhatchee High School in Fort Walton Beach.
Navarre girls won nine of 10 weight divisions Wednesday. The Lady Raiders didn’t have a lifter in the unlimited division.
