Wewa repeats as welding champions

Lively Technical College recently hosted a welding competition for high school students and those students dual enrolled in area technical institutions. The competition was held for the first time in 2023, and as the reigning champions, Wewahitchka High School was invited to defend its title, and once again left with the championship belt.
Welding Instructor Eddie Price took a team of five and two alternates to the competition. Caleb Cooper took an individual second place and Blaize Davis took an individual fifth place, and together the team accrued enough points to win the overall competition and were once again awarded custody of the highly-coveted championship belt to display at their home school until next year’s competition.
“Chances for future competitions are very promising as only Cooper is a senior,” said Price. “All other team members are currently sophomores. Pictured from left are Ja’corey Williams, T. C. Hoover, Blaize Davis, Braden Kemp, Caleb Cooper, Cole Bailey, and Trey Hill
