BAKER — Seven Baker School boys weight lifting team members in the District 1-1A qualifying meet Tuesday earned a trip to the April 1 District 1-1A meet at Arnold High School.

Each weight class’s top three finishers qualified for a trip to the Arnold meet and more than half of the 13 lifters Baker had in the meet qualified for the next round.

The Gators scored 47 points, placing second to West Florida Tech and ahead of third-place Gulf Breeze in the team standings.

Two Baker lifters — Stefan Sanguyo in the 119-pound class and Andrew Allen in the 154-pound class — won their division.

Four Gators — David Hargraves, 119; Tyler Oliver, 154; D.J. Thomas, 183; and Taylor Brown, 219 — finished second in their division.

Taylor Carlisle qualified with a third-place finish in the 129-pound class.

“It felt good,” Allen said of his win with lifts totaling 450 pounds. “I’m glad I finally won a meet, and I’m glad I get to go to regional my first time.
