The weightlifting coaches at the two county public high schools tossed a new wrinkle into the season, promoting a Gulf County championship aimed at awarding not a team title, but individual titles.

The teams squared off last week in advance of this week’s Region 1-1A weightlifting meet at Tallahassee Maclay.

The Gators of Wewahitchka had four lifters qualify for the region meet; Port St. Joe had six – Drew Jones, Carter Thacker, Zaccarro, Greg Smith, Umstead Sanders and Alvin Dempsey.

The results from last week’s county championships:

119 pounds – 1. Michael Hinsley (W), 325 total; 2. Drew Jones (PSJ), 190 total;

129 pounds – 1. Blake Kemp (W), 365 total; 2. Matt Simpson (PSJ), 285 total;

139 pounds – 1. Carter Thacker (PSJ), 445 total; 2. Cameron Laster (W), 350 total;
