    Region 4-AAAAA Preview

    Is it already Region time?... and the answer to that was 1-AAAAAA being decided down in Moultrie (Colquitt County) Thursday and 4 others kick off Saturday. With Region most of the top squads will take care of business and try not to get injured. For those schools on the 'Bubble' it may be a day of rejoicing and for some heartbreak after hundreds of miles of training including hot Summer runs only to have your season and possibly HS running career end. Best of Luck to everyone the next 8 days. Pictured above is Starrs Mill's Joshua Warren

    Week Ga.MileSplit 3A Team Rankings

    There wasn't much action in 3A this week.  It seems as if may teams chose to throw down at practice instead of running in meets.  There were some movers though, as Coahulla Creek ran very well on the speedy Baylor course and Hart County's boys moved into the top 10 with a good run at Crow's Lake.  The Savannah Arts ladies climbed way up to 5th with their 22:40 average at Richmond Hill. Audrey Honiotes of Hart entered the season as the odds on favorite in 3A, but is seeing serious challenges from a couple of freshman, Delaney Graham of Westminster and Sue Anne Moralis of East Jackson.  Honiotes and Moralis had a nice race at Crow's Lake, with Audrey taking the win by :08 seconds.  These 3 will be fun to watch at state on November 8th.
