2A Boys

If ever a squad was totally loaded for bear its Bleckley County. Traditionally an XC power, the Royals are primed to claim the 2A team title. It will be a battle for the final 3 Podium spots between  a well coached Banks County squad, Rockmart who boasts a stud athlete in Zoryan Hendricks, Douglass (this school keeps getting smaller) a talented Elbert County group led by Metrius Fleming, Vidalia and Washington County. 

Sprints

100m- Big race for the Royals as Nykeem Barrow from Bleckley County is a threat to double in the short sprints. he has a pr of 10.62 in the 100. Looking to challenge are Zabrion Whatley of Rockmart, Bryce Bailey of Bleckley was 2nd best at Sectionals at 10.76, and Artis Kingsberry from Swainsboro could make it a race. 

200m- This should be a very exciting race between Farrow of Bleckley (21.83) and Kingsberry from Swainsboro (21.86) 

400m- Only 2 athletes in AA have went sub :50 this season.. Sammy Morrow of Thomasville has the best time at 49.27 and Daimar Ivey of Temple HS has a pr of 49.96

Distance

800m- No one in 2A eclipsed sub 2:00 in the 800m this Spring making this a wide open race. Wes Ledford from Banks County is the top qualifier having a recent pr of 2:02.95, Jamie Townes of Westside Augusta, Jimmie Pierre of Douglass and Hunter Hartzog of Union County will be vying for a Gold medal. 

1600m- Big points on the line for Bleckley with Garrett Roger having the top pr at 4:29. Guy Gober of Rabun County has experience, Griffin Stephens of Banks County should be a factor in the race at 4:38 and Jaylen Thigpen from Bleckley will seek to make it a 'Royals flush'

3200m- Griffin Stephens from Banks County is the sole runner in 2A that has gone sub 10: with a pr of 9:55. A host of runners will be in pursuit including defending champ Guy Gober of Rabun County, Rogers of Bleckley County and Luke Gambrell from Union County. 

Hurdles

300h- Tiavonn Redfield of Josey HS had a breakout race at Sectionals taking over the top spot at 38.76  This could inspire Hendricks from Rockmart to push even harder at 39.17  Others with sub :40 performances are Camron Miles of Pepperell and Mitchell Marcuz from Bremen. 

Relays

4x100- Not known for their speed, Bleckley definitely has it in spades now with a school record of 41.82  Rockmart is speedy as well with a swift time coming in of 41.97

4x400- It should be a great 4x400 race coming down to the wire to close out the 2A Boys meet. Frederick Douglass sports the fastest pr at 3:26, KIPP will challenge as well as Bleckley seeking to end the meet on a very high note and a solid Banks County squad who looked strong at Region.
