Boys 5A Georgia Olympics Preview

Southwest DeKalb is lined up to repeat as 5A State Champs. The Panthers have been dominant in 5A this season in the Sprints and Relays which is their forte. Look for twins, Terry and Terryon Conwell along with their relay teams to do alot of damage climbing the scoreboard Saturday. Cedar Shoals' Sectional performance has put them firmly in the hunt for a top 4 team Cup led by Rogerous Swain, Markell Allen and Trent Harris.

Stephenson is in the mix led by one man wrecking crew Denzel Stephenson as could go for a triple in the Hurdles and LJ. They also should receive a boost from the relay squad. Also knocking on the Podium door should be Starrs Mill behind thrower Ryan Speicha, and Ben and Michael Runyan in the PV. Heritage Conyers will be right there featuring Jordan Young in the hurdles, relays and Marquis Davis in the throws. Fighting it out in the low 20's/high teens may be Flowery Branch behind Jake Shewbert, Camden County, Alexander, NS Columbus, Allatoona and Bradwell.
