Milton Varsity Boys will have a HUGE challenge against Brookwood at the 'Wingfoot XC Classic'
Blessed Trinity's Boys were a strong 2nd at Fulton County.
The Cambridge Bears are a very solid squad with high hopes of another Podium appearance this Fall.
With Landmark Christian pulling out 3 days before the meet, the Fulton County girl's team title was the host #1 ranked All-Class Lady Eagles of Milton to lose. Early on in the contest, it looked like Milton was on their way to a perfect score but even though they experienced some hiccups, Milton scored 18 pts (1st-18 pts) to best 11 scoring schools. Senior Marie Repasy of Milton took the lead just over 1200 meters into the race and extended it throughout. Her final time of 20:21 was the 9th fastest time ever recorded on the course (since 2007) and was good for a 40-second win and a 35-second PR on the course! Behind Repasy, Milton landed their two freshman sensations in Faith Bobak (2nd-21:01) and Abby Rindt (3rd-21:06). Maddie Heller of Blessed Trinity (4th-21:24) was close to 20 seconds back. The team title was never in question as the Lady Eagles of Milton outdistanced Blessed Trinity (2nd-79 pts) & Johns Creek (3rd-108 pts). This was Milton's first girl's county team title since 2012 as Northview had won the last 3 years in a row!
Marie Repasy continued her winning ways for Milton, having the #9 fastest time in course history!
