Very little movement in the Final Class Ranking of the Fall except for Roswell shooting up to 7th after a great race at 5-AAAAAA. Marietta looks unbeatable on 11-7. The 2-4 Podium spots will be wildly contested on what's forecasted to be a beat up, sloppy course in the afternoon.

Carrollton Last Chance Highlights and Team ReCaps Bruce Taylor Oct 25, 2015

Only 1125 runners participated at the annual Last Chance meet at the 'State Course' Saturday. Very few ranked larger school teams ran their varsities or came at all, with those in attendance taking advantage all around, giving their JVs a chance to test out the layout. In 2 weeks though, this venue will be electric..can you feel it?

Alexander / Asics Recap: Carnahan and Kennedy Rule the Day Bruce Taylor Oct 11, 2015

Weather looked to be an issue coming into this meet late Friday, but, after the course got a good soakin' overnight, it seemed to drain quite well by the early 'dark' start of the Championship Boys race. A thick blanket of mist enveloped the fields at first, but, as the morning progressed, it steadily rose up to reveal the beautiful, flat course ahead.

6A Sectionals ReCap Bruce Taylor Apr 27, 2014

The weather was pleasant (finally) for Sectionals this past Saturday. 6A 'B' was held in Tifton Ga, and 6A 'A' was at McEachern and the racing was hot and heavy for both. Surprising the only chatter on the Discussion Board has been very low key.  103 National Elites were achieved in 'A' and currently we have no data for 'B' as of presstime.

6A Girls Team Power Rankings thru 3-18 Bruce Taylor Mar 19, 2014

In the infamous words of Oscar Winner Matthew McConaughay,  "Alright, Alright, Alright.."  McEachern is a little heavy on points in the Individual Sprints (around 20-25) keeping Westlake actually at the top of the 6A Girls Team Power Rankings.  Your gonna have to be in Albany the 2nd week of May to see how this ultimately shakes out. Archer is in 3rd place thanks to their Throws and Relays with Grayson, Campbell, Marietta, Parkview and Etowah bunched together all in contention for GHSA Team Awards down in Albany.   These rankings were calculated by scoring the rankings as a meet. We scored 12 deep for individuals and 12 deep for relays. For example, for individuals 1st place received 12 points for their team, on down to 1 point for 12th place.

Meet Records Shattered at the Parkview Invitational Bruce Taylor Feb 23, 2014

Parkview's new 250K Recortan track was flat out torched today as existing meet records were shattered in the very unseasonably mild weather (but don't hold your breathe as next weekend looks to be much colder again) Parkview once again demonstrated how to run a high volume meet clicking off heat after heat in timely fashion on a 6-lane track.
