Coaches Tracy Browning and Wayne Flowers came up with a new wrinkle for the 2014 weightlifting season.

Browning, from Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School, and Flowers from Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School injected a neighborhood rivalry into the lifting by holding, at the end of the regular-season schedule, a county meet.

Last week the junior high lifters from both schools got in the act with a county challenge meet at Wewahitchka High School.

Each team had its successes and the meet was competitive and enjoyable, Browning said.

The results by weight class:

Up to 100 pounds – 1. Jeremiah Raerden (W); 2. Jaden Grantland (PSJ); 3. Jacob Curice (PSJ)

101-130 pounds – 1. Burly Parker (W); 2. Michael Hensley (W); 3. Jerral Nunnery (W)
