Maynard Jackson is the clear favorite to repeat as 3A Champs and would have to suffer a major blowout for anyone to challenge them. They could come out with 20+ points from the Field, and given on paper they Q' for Saturday finals, will begin to catch up and run away from the field. Their top athletes are Taryrn O'Neal (400,TJ), Ryah Jackson and China Waldorf in both Hurdles events. Their Relay squads have not been challenged by any 3A school this season.
It should be very intense to determine the next 3 Podium spots between Westside Macon, Westminster, Blessed Trinity and Cedar Grove. It may come down to who has a scoring 4x400 squad to determine the team runnerup. Top athletes to watch are listed below.
