Zaxby's Archer Invitational Preview


Archer Invitational Preview  (comments by Coach Ethan Kasson)

This year's edition is the largest in the meet's short, but illustrious history. There are 33 High Schools from across the southeast USA scheduled to compete at Archer on Saturday February 24th. Expected, are over 1,500 athletes to compete here this Saturday, including over 50 Individual State Champions, Several National Champions and even a handful of Junior Olympic Champions will all be taking part. Last year we had about 4,000 people in the stands and this year we are obviously expecting even more this year! 

MileSplit GA will be onsite, with help from Grayson's 'RAM Sports TV', shooting all the race video and taking thousands of photos! Be on the lookout Sunday for video and stills from the meet. Every single 'fast heat' will be worth watching with all the talent on hand..

 For the the first time in our proud history, we have acquired a corporate naming rights sponsorship with Zaxby's which has really taken this amazing event to the next level. "Having Zaxby's come on board is absolutely huge for us. These guys do so much for our program and in our community that it is my honor and privilege to announce our partnership with them. The field again this year is absolutely incredible...It has eclipsed even last years's overwhelming success in terms of total numbers and this meet's quality is second to none anywhere in the state."

 On Spring Valley HS (Columbia, SC) attending....

"Coach Jones is a South Carolina Hall of Famer and a 2X National High School Coach of the Year. So many of us have gone up to their Spring Break Classic over the years, that is very cool to see them come down into Georgia. I think Spring Valley's presence here kind of validates the Zaxby's Archer Invitational as the premier season-opening meet not only in Georgia, but also one of the best in the Southeast."

"To me, many of these events you will see are even deeper and more talented than even the state meet, because here you have the top athletes from various classifications competing against each other all at the same venue. I said it last year and I will say it again this year, this meet has almost turned into the Preseason Meet of Champions overnight and is a direct reflection and a result of the outstanding coaches we have here in the area."
