Mother Nature gave Old Man Winter a nudge Saturday, letting him know his days are numbered. The opening meet of the 2015 season at Landmark Christian was hugely popular, with the maximum number of schools participating. Although a steady headwind down the finishing straightaway made conditions challenging, this did not deter very enthusiastic competition.
After 2 weeks of very little Track here in Georgia, the Parkview FAT meet was a welcome relief for anxious competitors to test their mettle against some good competition. Over 30 heats in the Boys 200 made for a busy nite...
The 1st Annual Big Peach Distance Kickoff was a huge success to begin the Outdoor season as many competitive races were produced by the 12 schools that attended. It was windy as all get out, but eased up a bit after the 800 meter races began. Parkview as usual did a great job hosting the event.

Serena Tripodi and Jenna Gearing dueled for the Overall w/ Triodi winning by :20 in 19:28.. What was interesting if one looks at results, is Wesleyan proved they can run with Lovett and if 2 of Wesleyan's girls can best their counterpart on Lovett's squad its going to be CLOSE. White's Girls edged Woodward by 9 points. Westminster's Boys upended 4A power North Hall by 2 points showing late signs they will be in the mix w/ East Jackson and Blessed Trinity at State. Quintin Miles and Corson Teasley swept the top 2 spots for North Hall.

Anna Marion Block from AA and Justin Weegar of Evans (pictured) were Overall winners.
It was a long day of racing and perhaps a few tempo runs at Carrollton Last Chance as evidenced by a few of the top athletes competing. In the 6-A races South Forsyth's squads toured the course winning both races easily as the other 6A 'Powers' opted to rest and prep for Region conpetition. Matt Patterson and Savannah Carnahan swept the Overall races for South....

Nineteen 1A & 2A schools were registered for the early and chilly 8:00am Boys start. However, only nine started with the others opting to run in later races. Galloway Boys proved they are title contenders beating several ranked squads. Friedman strolled to 1st in 16:47. Landmark's Girls (sans Kathryn Foreman who is nursing an injury) won the Girls race with Nicole Fegans and Sarah Foreman taking 1st and 2nd.
