Citrus/Sumter Weightlifting Championships

WHO: Citrus, Crystal River, Lecanto, South Sumter and Wildwood.

WHERE: South Sumter High School, State Road 48 to U.S. 301, turn left; about a half-mile on the left.

WHEN: Weigh-ins at 3 p.m., weightlifting begins at 3:30.

WHOM TO WATCH: Citrus _ Nick Morris (129 pounds), John Gebbia (139), Timmy White (154), Jason King (238). Crystal River _ Phuong Chau (119), Anthony Cooks (139), Tim Ditty (169), Ricky Posselt (183), Clayton Boyette (199), Jason Massey (219) and Sam Houston (Heavyweight). Lecanto _ Jeff Hoki (129), Ryan Pelky (183) and Joey Courter (199).

OUTLOOK: Crystal River won last week's Citrus County Championship 46-42, topping Citrus only after judges ruled that Hurricanes' heavyweight Justin McMichael did not complete his last attempt. Chances are, the same teams will battle it out for this one. Crystal River got good performances from some of its lesser-known lifters last week. Citrus will need strong performances from other than Morris, White and King.
