Eleven lifters will compete for Navarre in the boys state weightlifting meet Saturday in Panama City. That is a school record, beating the old mark by three.
Jordan Jefferson, Josh Carter, Daniel Bost and Chris Williams all earned automatic bids to state for winning regional titles.
Alex Najera, Cody Thompson, Noah Melendez, Evan Gourley, Omari Green, Caleb Dale and Jacobi Smith earned at-large bids to state, which takes place at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Arnold High School.
Navarre is having its best season in program history, winning district and regional championships and going unbeaten for the first time. The regional title is the first outright crown for the Raiders.
