The GISA had their State Cross Country meet this past Saturday at the Darton College course (adjacent to the Westover course) in Albany. MileSplit was onsite catching the action from Jeremy Danzie's eye.
It was a great day of racing way down in Albany at Darton State College for the GISA State Cross Country Championships. The morning started out with temperatures in the high 40s, but as soon as the sun came up the temperatures warmed up quickly. The AAA boys team title was up for grabs as Southland and Trinity Christian Dublin had their 'Rubber Match' after going head to head thrice with TCD. Deerfield did a great job hosting the meet. Results were posted almost as soon as the last runner finished. Deerfield did a great job hosting the meet. Jason Potter, a Deerfield Windsor parent, was responsible for the course set up and finish chute doing a great job. Results were posted almost as soon as the last runner finished.
After a great 2013 State meet at Loganville Christian School, GISA has shifted the meet to Darton State College's course just around the corner from the home of the Westover Invitational. MileSplit GA will have a photographer onsite and have a meet summary same night. Southland Academy seems to be the top Girls team along with Westminster Schools of Augusta. Two schools with good Girls programs last season jumped into the fire of GHSA competition in Mount De Sales and Stratford.
It was quite a dual between Ruthie Powell of The Heritage School and tiny Jodie Holodak of Augusta Prep for over 2 miles as ran as if attached to the hip before the street crossing before Powell began to slowly power away on the long hill taking the Individial state title posting the top Girls time of the meet in 19:43 has Mount De Sales been hiding this season? The Cavaliers fended off higher ranked teams capturing the AAA Girls team championship.
What a race! Both teamwise and individually on a briskly cool morning with perfect condtions on the more challenging LCA course. LCA did a great job hosting the championship as Evan Downs of Westminster Augusta snaked his way past 8 runners after the mile mark winning the Individual title and Southland's boys seized the team title.
The AAA girls team competition should be extremely competitive, with three teams near the top all season: Mt de Sales, Stratford (who is the defending champ), and Holy Spirit Prep of Atlanta. I would not count out The Weber School, Augusta Prep and Westminster Augusta. In the AAA girls competition, Ruthie Powell from Heritage should be the heavy favorite. Deerfield's Virginia Moore and Mt. De Sales' Jessy Tallent also have run very well of late.
For AAA boys, Mt. DeSales graduated its top 3 runners from last years championship team that edged Heritage by a handful of points. The teams that finished 2-3-4 last year (Heritage, Southland and Augusta Prep) should compete fir this years team title. Heritage seems to have an edge in depth based on head to head results this season. The course is a technical 2 loop course with a start and finish on the football field grass. The course runs the perimeter of the campus and through mulch and leaf trails in the woods behind the athletic fields. The campus course is though without any major hills.
