PUNTA GORDA — Charlotte High School’s Billy Pesti gave a huge push upward and got a thumbs up from the official. The crowd, including many Tarpon fans, cheered loudly for good reason. That lift set a new Charlotte school record of 400 pounds for the bench press and helped Pesti win the 238-pound class with a 685 total at the District 2A-7 meet Thursday in the Tarpons’ gymnasium.
It also qualified Pesti for the state meet April 26 in Kissimmee.
