After a beautiful day on Friday, the weather began to turn just before the A Private boys race as a light drizzle began to slowly increase to a steady rain during the 7A races and maintain its intensity until the 2A girl's race was well underway. 7A boys were almost a toss-up coming into the race with Denmark ranked #1, Marietta 2nd, Harrison 3rd (who beat Marietta at region), and 'darkhorse' Norcross 4th.
7A Boys start
Miller had a 70 meter lead on top of the horseshoe hill.
Sully Shelton led Harrison to a 2nd place team finish after his runner-up finish at 16:07.
Hayden Marshall (with the traditional Milton state meet hairdo) placed 3rd overall going 16:16.
Will Bray from Brookwood had a huge race claiming 4th overall in 16:20.
James May of Marietta was a huge factor in the Blue Devils' team victory placing 5th overall.
Ethan Ashley led the Great Danes all season and took 6th overall posting a time of 16:36.
Norcross fought their way into a team Podium spot placing 3rd.
