GHSA AAAAA Girls State Preview

Grisham Stadium

AAAAA will once again have North Springs attempting to be yet another school going for a 3-Peat next weekend and there doesn't seem to be anyone to stop them. The Virtual meet team scores will show, if compared to season bests, the Lady Spartans were content to Q' for the big dance and should begin their march with O points on Saturday, before they start ringing up the field beginning with the  4x100 on Saturday. They just have way too much speed and hurdles talent. Their 4 top athletes are Destiny Jackson, Jayda Drake Howard, Saran Kouyeth and Kennedy Crawford, don't be surprised if some relay records fall in AAAAA next weekend. 

Buford has a very strong team and will be on the scoreboard heading into Finals, where they will challenge North Springs in the relays, sprints and hurdles events. Their top athletes are Alexa Rossum, Erin Marsh and Kimberly Harris. Fayette County has the firepower to finish a clear 3rd featuring horizontal jumper Na'ilah Moore. Miller Grove as usual has Relays speed and mid-distance specialist Emoni Coleman, who has a 2:11.98 to her cred in the 800m. Thomas County Central has certainly been the benefactor of sprinter Mahogany Walter moving into their school zone. Individually, Walter could score up to 28 points for the Yellow Jackets..Also fighting for Podium spots will be: Maynard Jackson (who got bumped up 2 Classes), Starrs Mill, Woodland Stockbridge, Stockbridge and McIntosh. As for distance events (1600/3200) it looks like no punches were pulled at Sectionals.
