A look at where Raider lifters rank going into state

Winning a state championship in weightlifting comes down to numbers.

There are 20 weight divisions. Fifteen lifters are competing for Navarre’s girls weightlifting team, which has won the last four state championships. This is the most of any school at the state meet, which takes place Friday at Arnold in Panama City. The meet begins at 10:30 a.m.

The first six places in each weight division are awarded points. First place is awarded 7 points. The runner-up receives 5 points, third place picks up 4, fourth place gets 3 points and the fifth-place lifter receives 2 points. The sixth-place lifter earns 1 point.

Theoretically, the more lifters, the better the chance of gaining points. One point could mean the difference between first and second place, as it did in 2013 when the Raiders won their first state championship by one point.
