Until last week, Navarre’s flag football team didn’t have its entire roster together for a practice. Several of the girls were still playing basketball for a Raider squad that reached the Elite Eight.

Second place finish not good enough for Raider lifters

Even with a second-place finish at the Northwest Florida Invitational last Wednesday afternoon at Baker, Navarre’s boys weightlifting team isn’t satisfied with the result.
