Baker lifters shine at district qualifier

“I could have done more in clean. I’m going to work hard and try to get better.”

Brown’s lifts totaling 530 pounds were just off his personal best, and while he was pleased with the results, he isn’t satisfied with it.

“I did pretty good,” he said. “I could do better. I just have to keep working and get a little stronger before the next meet.

“I was 10 pounds under my personal best. I scratched on my last bench at 280; I was close and I almost got it.”

The district qualifier was another success in a successful season for the Gators, Baker lifting coach Andy Valmus said.

“We had an undefeated season in dual meets,” he said. “We’ve been undefeated for three years. We haven’t lost a meet since coach (Matt) Brunson (athletic director and head football coach) got here (in January of 2011).

“We’ve got several guys that will be going to Panama City at Arnold. We had some guys that got their personal best total, which in a big meet like that is pretty impressive.”
