This Saturday at historic Boling Park, Cherokee County will be holding their championship meet. This is a competition that has been fierce over the past several years, but dominated by Etowah High School. Unlike some other county meets, it seems as if all the Cherokee County schools really get fired up for it as rarely do you see a varsity lineup without one of its top runners. It also marks the beginning of Championship season with Region and State meets in the coming weeks.

Not much movement this week, we had teams on one of the quicker courses in North Georgia @ Mountain but then some went to Westover on a really fast course. Teams that didn't go to either of those took the week off and are probably set to go to Asics this weekend. Maybe after most AA teams get a chance on fast courses we might be able to do a bit more comparing. SVA on the girls side looks strong with a series of wins. Definitely on the radar and inching closer and closer to the podium. Can't wait to see them chase down of the girls from AA at Carrollton in a few weeks.
