Georgia Olympics AAAAAA Preview

Robert Dunning of Kennesaw and Martice Moore of McEachern Clash in the 110 Hurdles (mjd.online)

Going in McEachern looks good on paper and its going to take some challenge by a few teams and a miscue or 2 for someone to push the Indians. Martice Moore is a threat in both hurdles events, Dylan Hamilton had the top time out of Sectionals, Cedric Williams can bound in the TJ, Tyler Simmons is a capable sprinter and their Relay squads are formidable.

Newton is balanced with jumper Jeremiah Holloman, Alex Sands in the short sprints and tough relays. Rockdale can put up serious points behind sprinter Lawrence Crawford, hurdler Jhibri Greer and of course fast relays. Marietta will be in the mix with as many as 6-7 athletes capable of scoring including Khayvon Benson and relay squads. Brookwood could be in te mix for a Podium spot behind distance ace Miles Yapp (who cruised in the 3200 at Sections) Archer is huge on the Field with throwers Ryan Camp, Sam Wright and Sloan Huff. Walton could be a factor with distance stars Mitchell Sanders and Michael Greer (800)

Lawrence Crawford from Rockdale County could shake things up in the 100/200 Meter races

2 schools are almost one man bands with a great athlete each including Roswell with Tyson Spears (100,200,LJ) and Kennesaw Mountain sporting Robert Dunning in the 100h,300h and LJ.

Ryan Camp of Archer is an absolute 'Beast' in the Discus (via gdp.online.com)

Distance Races:

The 1600 Thursday should be a barnburner with Miles Yapp the favorite as he's pr'd at 4:16. Chasing may be a trio of 4:21- 4:25 guys:
