A Public will get their due Saturday at the GHSA State Championships. This could be a very tight race to determine the Boys Team Champ.
A Public Girls will also get their due Saturday at the GHSA State Championships. Commerce edged defending State Champ Towns County at the Area 4 meet.
After an amazing 4th place finish in 2014, can Alexander pull off winning it all this Fall? Shewbert and Page will dance again for the Overall title.
AAAA Girls will hit the State course after 7 races have competed, meaning they could face the worst conditions yet this Fall. Marist is a lock to take the team title unless 3 of their girls somehow do not finish the race.
The AAAA Boys race is one of the 'Feature' meets Saturday as this Class is on fire. Ga.MileSplit will be shooting race footage! Frank Pittman vs Thomas Moore for the Overall possibly...
This year's AAA meet will be very exciting! The forecast calls for mud and AAA will be the 5th and 6th races of the day out of 14 so it will be sloppy, but not as bad as later in the afternoon.
This year's AAA meet will be very exciting! The forecast calls for mud and AAA will be the 5th and 6th races of the day out of 14 so it will be sloppy, but not as bad as later in the afternoon. When there's this much on the line, nobody cares about the weather, it's GAME ON!! Congratulations to all AAA State qualifiers and good luck on Saturday.
AA gets to run after 1pm, which could be perilous for less experienced runners on a chopped up course. Lovett is a lock to win the team title unless their bus breaks down.
The AA Boys team race will be epic. As no Public School team has won a State title dating back to 2000 & 2001 when Cartersville pulled it off! Since that era, the closest any Public school has come, was Bob Roller's East Jackson squad who was a distant 2nd to Westminster back in 2009.
This is going to be one of, if not the fastest Girls race of the meet upfront as 8 girls have pr's under 19 minutes with 3 going sub 18: !
A Private Boys is a down somewhat this Fall, individually and in team strength, which will make for an interesting first race of the day at 7:45am.
Fastest 5k times across all divisions at the state meet!

AAAAAA Girls got the shortened route to race on and made the most of it posting the fastest times of the day. Mill Creek's squad and Lindsay Billings are 2015 Champs.
They came and conquered just as in 2014, as Marietta put on a show, flying around the toothless band field area (without Separation Slope)
That 2 week rest from racing was just what the doctor ordered for defending Champ Dunwoody as the Cats' swept the Team and Individual titles.
This was the fastest race of the day using the 'Slipperation Slope' route. Why, and how is it, that those pesky Angoras from Clarkston run so well at State the past 3 years?
Marist came with their usual haircuts to State and were given a scare by Region 6 rival St.Pius X who has a history of excelling at State and made the War Eagles earn their title. (pic by McCauley)
Anna Marian Block has top performance of the Day on 'Separation Slope Course, while Landmark Christian adds another team title to their trophy case.
This race had the best course conditions of the meet with Landmark repeating as Team Champs while Griffin McCauley of Paideia took the Overall title.
Westminster's Girls make it 2 straight titles easily winning the team title, while it was the Sue Ann Morales show in the Individual race.
History...was made Saturday in the modern era, as Bleckley County's boys squad completed their dream season winning the AA Boys State title..and Carl Ellis Corley captured the Overall as well.
Lovett ran away with the AA Girls State title led by Overall Champ Serena Tripodi and Haley Hooper. After this race, the course was re-routed..
Upstart, Drew Charter out of Atlanta, destroyed A Public. Blake Bargeron from Telfair County wins Overall title going away..
Towns County, like in 2014, Sweep the A Public Team and Individual Titles. Hannah Whitehead defends the Overall as well.
