6A Boys Team Rankings Week Ending 9/13 Georgia Ranking Committee Sep 14, 2015

Milton sits atop the 6A Boys Rankings after their 2nd place finish at Knights Crossing up in Virginia without Jack Bluth and their #4.

Saucony Battle of Atlanta Boys Preview Bruce Taylor Aug 27, 2015

Battle of Atlanta Preview- The Saucony Battle of Atlanta has grown from 22 Teams in 2008 to 76 Squads this season and has evolved into one of the premiere HS/MS meets in the State. The Nash Farms course is a 2.5 loop 95% grass course. Most consider the course moderate in difficulty and it is the most spectator friendly course in Georgia. Spectators are able to see over 90% of each race. The Nash course has been home to numerous major high school XC meets, several NCAA D1 meets and conference championships and the 2013 D3 Regional Meet. Due to the growth of the meet, there have been 3 more JV races added. The Middle School races have over 900 runners signed up as well.

6A Girls Pre-Season Outlook Mike Demarest Aug 7, 2015

A surprising amount of prominent athletes on the 6A circuit return for the 2015 campaign. Based on those returners, I’ve devised the following pre-season rankings heading into this season along with a couple highlights of those returners. NOTE: These are NOT State predictions which often weigh state meet history and other intangibles into play. This is my attempt to best make sense of the top returning teams without merely looking at a virtual meet.

While 6A lost some talent at the top, a surprising amount of prominent athletes on the 6A circuit return for the 2015 campaign.

6A Boys- Marietta Rules Team Race, Stockwell Races To Overall Win Bruce Taylor Nov 9, 2014

You had to be there and watch the setting and atmosphere change as 4A began to race and the 6A schools and their rabid fans begin to arrive and populate the surrounding start/finish area and line both sides of the big hill below the school on top.  The buzz could be felt in the air as the 6A Boys headed towards the start line and warmed up, doing runouts waiting for some sloooow AA girls to finish their stroll.  Tension and anticipation mounted as squads toed the line and thousands of their faithful fans, jv runners roared as the race began...Marietta went to work taking care of business and no fewer than 10 guys mixed it up within 25 meters of each other till the end as Davis Stockwell emerged victorious...  

Class 6A Boys State Meet Preview Mike Demarest Nov 4, 2014

6A Boys Team:  Marietta.  The entire season (and really even during last track season), the whole state has been watching this team.  They’ve gone undefeated versus all GA competition and only have a blemish on their record vs. a now #11 nationally ranked La Salle squad (source:  DyeStat).  They very well could put 3 (more?) in the top 10 in the state’s biggest class, and with a 1-5 split of well under a minute at region, we can expect them to have their 4-5 not far behind.  It’s their race to lose.  Coach “Black Jack” Coleman will have his guys ready to go.  It’ll be exciting to watch.    

Final Pre-State Class 6A Team Rankings Georgia Ranking Committee Nov 4, 2014

Region meets last week for 6A teams were quite telling of who the real players are this Saturday in Carrollton. The Boys top 5 are all strong. We can't see anyone pushing Marietta, but the real race is after the show for 2nd thru 4th, and will Miles Yapp be back for Brookwood? South Forsyth's Girls beat Northview at region, can they do it again and beat Milton? Milton's program has been on fire this season...and Collins Hill with their very tight pack at region could make some noise.

Region 7-AAAAAA- Collins Hill Gals are Back... Mill Creek Rolls to Boys Title Bruce Taylor Nov 2, 2014

For as long as I've been involved as a parent/webmaster with Georgia HS Cross Country, the Gwinnett County teams (formerly in 8-AAAAA from 2001-2005) and now split into Regions 7 and 8,  have been the 'Regions of Doom' as many squads were left sitting at home or watching onsite, teams qualify from weaker regions with no chance to make the Final 10. Its just a fact sometimes teams have the misfortune of being aligned by the GHSA.  Now, with regions 7 and 8-AAAAAA  (the super schools) have caught a break dividing the once large 8-AAAAA into 2 Regions.  Some fantastic racing transpired at the challenging International Horse Park as Collins Hill's gals and Mill Creek's boys captured the team titles. Pictured is Mill Creek frosh Sarah Petit taking 3rd in the VG race.

Week Ga.MileSplit 6A Team Rankings Georgia Ranking Committee Oct 21, 2014

Coach Wood was ahuge meet for Metro 6A's best of the best. Only South Forsyth and West Forsyth did not compete their with South Forsyth off. As the teams that went head to head so should be the rankings....Northview is looking untouchable in 6A if they stay healthy, Milton ran great moving up past Harrison.

Week 7 Ga.MileSplit Class 6A Team Rankings Georgia Ranking Committee Oct 8, 2014

How All-Class Rankings went reflected how 6A was affected.  IMHO, no one gained any ground on Marietta's boys though Mill Creek and Walton ran great. Lakeside DeKalb's boys had a sweet race at Wendys cracking the top 10. Northview's girls were off and attached to a local 5k event. (per their school webpage) Mill Creek's gals were 11th in the ROC at Great American solidfying their #2 ranking. South Forsyth dominated at Mountain moving into 3rd. Etowah's lady Eagles ran well at Wendys slicing into 5th and Marietta's lasses are beginning to sniff Podium possibilities after placing 17th at Great American.

Week 7 Ga.MileSplit All-Class Team Rankings Georgia Ranking Committee Oct 7, 2014

Take a Bottle, Shake it Up...Great American and Wendys (both NC) certainly affected All-Class Rankings this past week as no fewer than 6 Girls teams and 7 Boys teams had movement. Marietta's boys were 5 points away from winning the ROC at Great American and are stirring the pot in the Community as one of the greatest teams in recent GA XC history.  Hopefully, they will get some respect Regionally from MileSplit National. Walton's boys catapulted up to 4th after Jesse Owens (AL) Mill Creek continues to improve after their Great American performance cruising to 3rd.  Marist faced down tough comp at Great American staying put at #1. South Forsyth moved to 4th after Mountain Invite, Etowah enjoyed the beef at Wendys re-entering the top 10, and Marietta's girls had a solid race at Great American showing signs of their pre-season potential.   

Week 5 Ga.MileSplit Girls 'Runners of the Week' Bruce Taylor Sep 24, 2014

Here they are, in a more condensed version this week.  Hannah Petit from Mill Creek may be a relative newcomer to the Sport but her win at the Gwinnett County Championships earned her All-Class 'Runner of the Week' ending 9-20. Other 'Class' ROWs for last week were Lindsay Billings, Alyssa LeClaire, Morgan Ilse, Emily Sexauer, Jordan Zimmerman, Emily Swanigan and Melissa Reyes.

Week 4 Ga.MileSplit Class 6A Team Rankings Georgia Ranking Committee Sep 16, 2014

By the most excellent spreadsheet compiled by your 6A Ranker, its easy to reason why teams moved up or down this week. Our All Class/6A rankers collaborate before releasing Weekly rankings to be as objective as possible (much like the AJC, rofl) Marietta Boys, Northview Girls are rock steady at #1 again. Teams moving up All-Class, did the same in 6A. Milton had a great week as some forecasted they would rise up and be top 5 squads. Mill Creek showed promise of what can be come November...Brookwood, Walton and North Cobb boys enjoyed the week off. 

Week 4 Ga.MileSplit All-Class Team Rankings Georgia Ranking Committee Sep 16, 2014

After some serious racing this past weekend movement abounds in the All-Class Rankings. Marietta holds on to the top Boys spot and so far it seems they have a nice gap over the challengers. Milton rocketed to 2nd after their 3rd place showing at Knight's Crossing in Virginia beating some regionally top rated squads. Mill Creek logically moved into 4th from the watch list after finishing 4 points behind Peachtree Ridge at 'Ortho'. 5A Forsyth Central's stock rose dramatically after winning Warpath.  The Lady Eagles of Milton, much like their Boys squad ran well in Virginia rising 5 rungs to 3rd. Landmark Christian may have found their much needed 5th runner at 'Ortho' placing 4th besting a few 6A top 10 teams along the way. Mill Creek moved up to 8th from the 'Watch List' and Westminster's vaunted Girls showed promise placing 8th at 'Ortho'. Marist and Northview have the makings of a nice showdown hopefully down the road

Carrollton Orthopedic Invitational Preview Bruce Taylor Sep 11, 2014

After maybe having a few less teams attend than in the past, the Carrollton Orthopedic Invitational is 67 HS teams strong again and should have over 2000 runners registered for action Saturday. Many of the top programs in Georgia will run their entire squads and a few will hold out their top runners for another day... The Sunshine State has  arguably three of the best boys teams in the state, two of the best girls teams in the state , the top freshman in the state on the girls side, and a potential foot locker finalist in Sukhi Khosla on the boys side lacing it up with our state's student-athletes. Its a star studded event that could turn into a barnburner depending on what teams from Ga choose to run in the Championship race....

North Hall Boys Triumph, Marist Girls Hang On at NEGA Bruce Taylor Aug 23, 2014

North Hall lived up to their pre-season 4A #1 Ranking besting Marist and North Oconee's boys squads. Frank Pittman has stepped it up for Marist winning the Championship Boys overall title in 16:15 nipping NH's Quintin Miles. Marist Girls unleash a frosh girl Josie Wirtz who leads them to the Championship Girls team title. Savannah Carnahan takes the Girls overall title in 19:00.

6A Boys Georgia Olympics Meet Preview Bruce Taylor May 6, 2014

Shiloh HS is the pre-meet favorite after winning Region and getting their top scorers out of Sectionals. If they perform as they have all season the Generals could have it clinched before the 4x400m relay. Westlake looks to be a contender and Brookwood's top guns will have them near the top of the leaderboard (electronic) by Friday's end. There are no less than 5 teams with an opportunity to bust into the top 4 including Lovejoy, Grayson, Mill Creek, Rockdale County and Collins Hill.  

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 Boys Team Power Rankings ending 4-1 Bruce Taylor Apr 2, 2014

Shiloh has 5 athletes that are piling up points...and in the crazy web the GHSA weaves upon competition limits they are controlling 6A.  It only takes 3-4 National Elite athletes to win a state title down her in Georgia unfortunately as has been proven for decades due to the archaic GHSA rules. Rockdale, Westlake and Collins Hill are packed up together after Shiloh..

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

WOW...It couldn't be any closer in the 6A Boys Team Power Rankings..Westlake and Shiloh actually are within scoring parameters and separated by .5 of a point...6A Giant and defending champ Mill Creek is actually about 20 points behind these teams with North Gwinnett a close 4th. with Rockdale County and Peachtree Ridge lurking in the shadows...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.

Jerry Arnold Georgia Challenge Rocks the GA Track Scene Bruce Taylor Mar 9, 2014

The Jerry Arnold Georgia Challenge has been without question one of the best Outdoor HS Track and Field meets in the SE United States and this year's version cemented its reputation. Coach Jerry Arnold is without a doubt, one of the coaching legends in Georgia HS history (in any Sport) and this meet was off the chain producing 42 MileSplit Silver National Marks/Times. St.Pius X boys won the team competition making them heavy faves to repeat as AAA state champs at the GA Olympics in 8 weeks. Many race videos were shot by GaMilesplit's Taylor Ford and should be loaded in the next 24-36 hours. McEachern's girls made some noise giving Westlake notice they are going to challenge for a 6A title scoring 79 points besting Brookwood by 24 points.

6A- Brookwood Bucks Off a Strong Field for Team Title, Mills Too Tough Takes Overall Title Bruce Taylor Nov 9, 2013

Never doubt that Coach Dehnke's Brookwood squad isn't going to bring it at State. The Broncos have bounced up and down in the rankings all season, but on the biggest stage ran well enough to take the AAAAAA title with 101 points. Closest team race in history as 28 points separated 1-5. Back in  2007 only  21 points separated 1-5! Fun to watch...Kevin Mills was a man among boys running tall to his first state title.

GHSA Boys AAAAAA State Preview Travis Gower Nov 6, 2013

Berry Summary, Dynamite Race in 5A-6A Boys Taylor Ford Sep 2, 2013

The Berry College Clara Bowl Invite was again a great event highlighted by the hotly contested, super competitive 'Big Boys' race..Coming into the race there was a lot of hype on the boys side, with Mill Creek and St. Pius X rematch from the Stage Races, and Peachtree Ridge who did not run last week. Berry was the coming out party for not only the boys of The Ridge, but also the highly anticipated girls’ team. Peachtree Ridge and Mill Creek took to the front of the race early to establish themselves and avoid the traffic. The oppressive heat and humidity began to take its toll in the 1A-4A races and throughout the JV races (pics by S.Weaver)

GHSA Class 2A,3A,4A,5A,6A XC State Championship Previews Georgia Ranking Committee Nov 7, 2012

This season, the course at Carrollton has ran slower, and may have been lengthened a few meters which should favor the 'strength' runners. At press-time, it has been discussed that mats may possibly be covering the many pavement crossings which has been a sore subject for XC purists as the growth of Carollton Schools has stirred the pot enough for a few schools willing to loan the mats they have to cover the pavement. This article will include 2A thru 6A State Previews only. The weather for raceday looks very promising at this time and bodes well for fast times  6A...we have been saving the Best for Last, and here it is from,  thanks to Pre1962 as expounds his unique and detailed breakdown for the and GATFXC would like to thank all the Rankers and Runner of the Week Committee members for the tough, time consuming efforts put forth this season to rank each class along with  contributing  articles and selections.

Frightenly Fast First Weekend of Racing... Bruce Taylor Aug 26, 2012

           Sidney Speir and Brad Hort of McIntosh torching Clinton Farms Image by Christine Speir How many late August XC races have produced 4 sub 16 times in the Boys races and a sub 18 Girls performance? Granted, the weather was very kind until about 11am and almost all the athletes surely took advantage. Anyone who's not new to the Sport, knows the Bob Blastow layout at Clinton Farms is a fast trail, but NEGA and the Our Lady of Mercy course both got torched as well. The River Green Parkway also has a reputation as a fast and flat course (venue of the 2 Mile Stage Races) Westminster hosted the Kosh Classic and that course has a rep as being tough...
