When the Girls’ 1A-10 District Weightlifting meet was all said and done, 60 lifters advanced to the Regional meet held January 23rd in Leesburg. Of those 60, 31 will be representing Hernando County looking to take home a regional championship and secure a spot in the State Meet.

Nature Coast came into the season with one goal, to win the district title and send as many lifters to regionals and states as possible. Mission accomplished. The Lady Sharks sent 13-of-16 lifters into regionals and walked away with four individual district champions as well as the overall team district championship.

Ashley Gentz, a state medalist and undefeated in her last seven meets, continued to ride the momentum to the tune of a 165-bench and a 185-clean-and-jerk for a 350 pound total, topping the meet.

Annelise Rentas and Victoria Davilla edged out teammates Samantha Traudt and Rebecca Crayton respectively to claim their district crowns at 139 and 119. Traudt and Rentas actually tied with a 330 total, however the tie-breaker was weigh-in weight where Rentas was lighter by .6 pounds.

Jessica Osborne won the 110 division, knocking off almost unbeatable Weeki Wachee lifter Calleigh Brannan, rounding out the Sharks individual winners.

Nature Coast also claimed runner-up in four classes as Traudt and Crayton were joined by Kaitlyn Pierce (129) and Jouie Miller (unlimited).

Leopards Place Fourth

11 regional qualifiers helped Hernando finish fourth, despite not having any individual winners. Paisley Easton, Irene Hoffman and Janea Mobley finished second in their respective divisions, while Jordan Lavin squeezed into qualifying position by finishing sixth at 183.

Hornets Claim Two Titles

Weeki Wachee claimed two individual titles, as well as sent seven total lifters to the regional meet, finishing fifth overall as a team.

Staking claim to be the first-ever girls’ weightlifting district champions at Weeki Wachee are Brooke Spaulding (154) and Kelsey Manns (199). Spaulding finished with a 260-pound total, and a pound less than Lecanto’s Taylor Young, giving her the crown. Manns would beat Hernando’s Hoffman 255-245 to claim her crown in the 199 division.
