The final day of competition saw 11 new stadium marks set/broken (after 7 were shattered on Day 1) and a tight team battle between host Milton (1st-113 pts) & Westlake (2nd-112.5 pts) on the boys side and a dominant win by the Lady Lions of Westlake (1st-164 pts) over a surprising North Springs squad (2nd-85 points) and day one leader Johns' Creek (3rd-62 pts) & Milton (4th-46 pts).
After Day 1 and all the field events are in, the boy's meet is showing one team with a commanding lead and another waiting in the wings but do they have the fire-power to make a run at the title?? The girls meet is turning into a two-team affair with the battle for 3rd amongst 4 schools all with scoring chances on the final day of competition!

The Milton High School Cross Country Team hosted the 2013 Fulton County Public Schools Cross Country Championships Saturday & defended its Best Overall Program Title with wins in both JV Races and a 2nd and a 3rd in the Varsity races. Let there be no mistake to cross country runners in the Metro Atlanta area who can testify that the Milton Course may be the toughest layout in the State. Very unlikely anyone pr'd here as Roswell's Drew Kelley had the top time today winning the Boys Overall in 18:01 leading Roswell to the Boys team title. On the Girls side Centennial triumphed scoring 50 points. Lindsay Billings of Northview was the top lady posting an impressive 20:30 on the monster layout.
