Carrollton Orthopedic Invitational Preview

                               Carrollton Orthopedic Invitational Preview

BOYS
 
Clarkston will go head to head with some top 6A/4A squads and will be tested at a course they seem to thrive on after placing 2nd in 5A last Fall. Marietta could possibly school the Angoras as the Blue Devils are the 'cream' of 6A and All-Class. St.Pius X will test their young legs against their stiffest competition yet if running full strength. No one should sleep on Peachtree Ridge as they have reloaded again after losing key runners to graduation. Other teams from Georgia testing their stamina are Flowery Branch, Greenbrier, Harrison, Hebron Christian, Landmark Christian, Mill Creek, North Cobb, North Oconee, Oconee County, Pace, Starrs Mill, Westminster, West Forsyth and Woodstock
 
Out of state teams will add to the Championship race including Florida's Flagler Palm Coast- Justin Pacifico (16:36), Leon HS boys- Sukhi Khosla (16:43),  Mandarin- Trenton Liberty (16:05), Winter Park- Nicholas Strange (17:16) and Auburn (Al) 2nd at Berry Fernando Lincoln (16:37)
