I see that 7-AAAA is gaining 2 new members next year - Flowery Branch & Denmark. That should make a great region even better. Just curious- how does the addition of Denmark impact the other Forsyth county schools, especially in terms of cross country? What about Denmark itself - is there a coach in place already? Likewise, what is the impact of the new Hall county school on Flowery Branch? It's pretty exciting news - glad to have you.

The athletic director for Denmark was just named a couple weeks ago. If Jamie Corr can do for Denmark sports what he did for Lambert baseball while he was there, they'll be in good shape. Denmark will be drawing primarily from South Forsyth. A few communities will be moving from Lambert to South Forsyth as well. Required transfers include incoming juniors. While unpopular, it could help create some instant success with regard to athletics. South Forsyth and Lambert will still be among the larger 7A schools so should still have healthy student bodies to draw talent from. Given South Forsyth's recent success, it seems that Denmark could come out guns a blazin'. If they can come together as a team and community they should have reason for optimism even with the quality competition they'll face in 4A. They'll also have the advantage of the Forsyth County water system... ...for those who think that's a thing... ...not sayin' it is... ...just sayin'.

With Marist, Blessed Trinity, Flowery Branch & White County, tough sledding for teams wanting to go to state on the girl's side.
