Lambert Boys 'Moo' Down the Competition! South Forsyth Girls Race to Team Title

It was a cloudy day chock full of colorful 'characters', parading around in their hokey Halloween costumes. Including, a funky 'Longhorn' and a crazed Gorilla..But the real action was out on the course, as Lambert's Longhorns destroyed the Boys field and South Forsyth's gals took advantage of Northview being down a key member, winning the Region 6-AAAAAA team title.

South Forsyth relishes their title and will aim for more in 6 days!

Varsity Girls Team- #1 Northview seemingly was without one of their top 5, and South Forsyth jumped all over it, running away with the Region team title by 17 points over runnerup West Forsyth who may have lost their ace Liz Galarza for the season as she hasn't raced in weeks. Northview came up 3rd and will hope to be full strength next week and defend their State title. It was a day of 'Doom' for Johns Creek as Alpharetta nipped them by 1 point securing the final ticket to Carrollton...
