NAVARRE — When it comes to area weightlifting coaches, there is Garrett Bagley and then there’s everybody else.


Navarre’s lifting guru, responsible for guiding the Raider boys to their first weightlifting title this past April, doubled down in February, leading the Navarre girls to second place at the 2A Florida High School Girls Weightlifting State Championships at Arnold High School.


With 26 total points, Navarre was just two points shy of Sunlake for the crown, which would have been Bagley’s fifth. The Raiders won four straight titles under Bagley from 2015-2018.


Most impressively, Navarre took second without a single individual champion, and of Navarre’s 19 state qualifiers, seven found their way to the podium.


Junior Jelina Bly placed fourth at 110 pounds with a 295-pound total.


Senior Katie Johnson took fourth at 119 pounds with a 320-pound total, besting her Region 1 mark by five pounds.


Senior Natalya Garza placed fourth at 129 pounds with a 330-pound total despite entering the day seeded off the podium.


At 139 pounds, seniors Makaila Hebner and Kylie Kerr went back-to-back, claiming third and fourth, respectively. Hebner totaled 345 pounds, while Kerr totaled 330.


Senior Veronica Hall took third at 154 pounds with a 370-pound total, up 10 pounds from her region lift.


And senior Alexis Prather took third in the unlimited class with a 510-pound total, up 25 pounds from regionals.


“I can’t say enough how proud I am,” Bagley told the Daily News in February. “My only disappointment is that they didn’t reach what they wanted to, and they deserved to because of the work they put in.


“We’re not gonna lay down. Second place in the state is awesome, but we’re gonna keep that high expectation of wanting a state championship.”
