Not to anyone's surprise here in Georgia, as Foot Locker All-Americans, FPD's Grace Tinkey and Peachtree Ridge's Josh Brickell were recently selected as Georgia's Gatorade Runners of the Year. Grace had an amazing race at Foot Locker Nationals in touch with the leaders the entire race and led the South Team to the top team finish placing 3rd overall in 17:37. She has already this 2012 Indoor season put the pedal down in the 3000 meters clocking a 10:04.19 at the Jimmy Carnes Indoor Yout Meet in Gainesville, Fla this past weekend. Brickell really began to hit full stride at the GHSA XC State Championships when he blasted away with 900 meters left in the race in what was to be a pre-cursor to his Foot Locker performances as he placed 4th in 14:41 (perhaps the best time ever for a Ga HS Boy at McAlpine) and followed that up in San Diego working his magic again in the latter part of the race finishing 8th in 15:24.2. And....these fine athletes are juniors so we get to see them for 3 more seasons of running. Congrats to both and best of luck this Outdoor season!
