Ben Hubers ran a state best 9:05.89 to take top honors in the 3200. The addition of mystery man Girma Mecoheso made this an interesting match up as Jay Heller and Ben Hubes have already put on a display earlier this season in the Cobb Co. Championships and the addition of a possible 3rd member of the group had everyone anticipating this race.

It\'s time for the boys to do their thing as all eyes turn to Jefferson. Who will stand out? Names such as Scheff, Warren, Wells, Hubers, Heller, Scott, Machovec...there should be something for everybody as the 2006 Georgia Olympics kicks off on Thursday. Check here for the schedule.
The 2006 Girls state meet has come and gone, putting a cap on an amazing season for the ladies. Names like Long, Dacus, Vaughn, Castlin, Reese, Drouin, Hall, Borsare, Goodman and the accomplishments associated with those names will be a part of many a track conversation in years to come.
Throwers, jumpers, and vaulters battled stormy skies and rain delays through the morning hours before getting a chance to shine. Pictured are Emily Bernhardt of Lassiter, Kristin Smith of Sprayberry, Lauren Chambers of Kell and Eve Machovec of Dacula.
It was the first match up of the season for Emily Reese and Emily Borsare. Amazingly, these two girls did not meet on the track until the state 3200 finals and the results lived up to the hype. Emily Reese and Emily Borsare hooked up in a classic match up resulting in an amazing 10:33.34 to 10:33.37 victory for Reese of Chamblee!
