Mother Nature gave Old Man Winter a nudge Saturday, letting him know his days are numbered. The opening meet of the 2015 season at Landmark Christian was hugely popular, with the maximum number of schools participating. Although a steady headwind down the finishing straightaway made conditions challenging, this did not deter very enthusiastic competition.

The Milton Showcase was contested over 2 days and proved to be the most outstanding meet of the weekend with 21 MileSplit National Elite standards achieved. 24 schools & 1234 athletes competed. Unique was the distance flavor including the 5000, 2 Mile, 1500 and DMR races. Milton's Boys won their first large Track invitational in nearly 6 years. Brookwood's Girls took the Team title and won the Overall Program Award.
The 5th Annual Eagle Invite survived the cold windy weather as there were several competitive distance races. Harper Sigler churned out a 1:57 into a stiff headwind down the home stretch and Sue Anne Moralis of East Jackson pulled away the final 300m for the win in the Girls 800.
After 2 weeks of very little Track here in Georgia, the Parkview FAT meet was a welcome relief for anxious competitors to test their mettle against some good competition. Over 30 heats in the Boys 200 made for a busy nite...

The 5th Annual Eagle Invitational will once again face chilly weather, but many athletes have to be anxious due to all the early season meet cancellations. 11 schools are currently set to compete including talented distance programs like East Jackson and North Oconee. This meet also is allowing more than standard entries per event and one very welcome addition is the new fence surrounding the track. Ga.MileSplit will be onsite shooting race video to be posted after the meet.
