Beginning with last week's meets from 2-25 thru this past Saturday, Ga.MileSplit will be selecting Track and Field Athletes of the Week. Mary Terry from North Oconee HS had an impressive first Outdoor meet at the 4th Annual Eagle Invitational earning 3A Girls Athlete of the Week honors.
What a change the 4th Annual Eagle Invitational was Saturday compared to 2013 when frigid 25 degree winds with no obstruction to block their force turned nearly everyone into ice cubes! Although no MileSplit National Silver Elite standards were achieved it was certainly a great day for Track and Field under mostly blue skies on the first day of March as 13 teams got their first chance to really stretch their legs and limbs out. The meet was very well ran and finished ahead of schedule as well. East Jackson also recently added a new horizontal jumps pit and runway..
