Weeks 6&7, Ga.MileSplit's MS Girls 'Co-Runners of the Week' Bruce Taylor Oct 10, 2014

However, their will be the USATF GA Youth/Midget races as well as AAU and don't forget Foot Locker South's 3000 Meter race which is always a great way to end a season of racing.  Pictured above (I believe) is Caroline Patterson from 'Great Strides' as she won 2 races less than 48 hrs apart to earn Co-MS Girls 'Runner of the Week' with Tift Middle's Emily Golden.
