When it comes down to GISA Girls AA, it reminds me a little of A Public in GHSA. With the exception of a few talented girls and a program or two, the level of competition drops off extremely from the larger AAA schools. The participation numbers are fairly low, like A Public girls, and regions reporting results is 50%. But, Regions 2 and 3 gave us something to analyze. The girls team race is up for grabs and Mary Alice Smoot is primed to win the individual 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.
Sign in (via YouTube) LCA State Course Video for GISA State Championship. Course has alot of winds and tight turns in the shady woods slowing things down. No tough hills/elevation changes like Carrollton, Double Dip or Nash Farms. But an interesting course nonetheless. Good job on the video!
Here is the re-designed LCA Course map for the 2013 GISA State Cross Country Championships. Its a 2 loop course that runs slower than what was contested on a few weeks back.
