Shequilla McClain of Redan HS signed her NLI with Shorter University.

Here are your 4A Girls Team Power Rankings thru 4-2. Marist looks unbeatable right now and poised to defend their title. Its a toss up right now between Redan, Monroe-Albany and Baldwin HS with Fayette County close behind.
In what had to be the nicest Saturday thus far for the Outdoor season the Loch Johnson Invite produced some lively competition amongst area teams and Redan from Stone Mountain. 13 National Elite performances were achieved as well as 44 Georgia Elite Standards. Redan blew away the Girls field winning by 56 points over 2nd place Athens Academy. Cedar Shoals and ACS were neck and neck till the 4x400 as Cedar kept the hardware at home with a 12 point margin of victory. The meet as usual ran like a well oiled machine.
The 19th Annual Loch Johnson Invitational is the. 2nd longest running meet in North Georgia behind the Jefferson Relays. This meet has strong field with a very local flavor. Ga.MileSplit will be onsite shooting video and stills. Back in 1996, Loch Johnson was a political science professor at UGA. He's an avid runner and applied for and received grant money to upgrade and rubberize Cedar Shoals' track so the Track program could host meets.
Marist had built a nice lead going into Saturday and needed to take care of business to secure the title early, but a fall in the 800m, threw a slight monkey in the wrench as the War Eagles had to watch with no chances to score in the final 3 events, hoping that Carrollton (who just had an outstanding run at the title Saturday) would not place at least 2nd in the 4x400m. The Trojans fell short by 3.61 seconds as Marist hung on defending their 2013 title. Redan took 3rd at 45 with Banneker 4th a point back.
It could be a probability that Marist is once again going to defend and sweep the 4A team titles in Track and Field, much like the War Eagles accomplished in Cross Country this past Fall. 100 points may not be out of the question if they are hitting on all cylinders. Carrollton figures to be in contention for 2nd as well as Banneker with the final 4th team honors wide open with Statesboro and Redan having the upper hand.
4A will get a full day's rest between prelims and Finals, which could be fortuitous to local schools Monroe and Westover. Points out on the Field will be at a premium and all but the National Elite athletes will have to go full bore in the Track prelims just to Q' for 'Finals Saturday' This classification is clearly the 2nd strongest All-Class and it's a drag we will never see the same power squads compete against each other again.
Its quite evident after the completion of last Saturday's round of qualifiers that class AAAA is the 2nd strongest in the GHSA. 96 MileSplit National Elite standards were achieved.. If one isn't keeping an eye out for what events to watch in this class you should now once 'Performance Lists' are posted. .
Last week's AAAA Region 'Athlete's of the Week' were Catie Faust from Marist after her 2:17 800m at Region 6 and Donald Daley from Redan HS as he swept the Throws in 51-11/174-8.
Monroe-Albany showed a chink in their armour bested by crosstown rival Westover in the Region 1 meet. Marist as expected took the Region 6 title but was pushed by traditional power Redan. In a close contest at Region 5 a fresh Fayette County squad came out on top over Shaw, Carrollton and Alexander. Eagle's Landing Girls made it a Golden Eagle sweep beating Woodland-Stockbridge by 7 points.
Marist is strong and powerful, but they are also heavy around 44 points in the distance events making it alot tighter race with Coach Musselwhite's always dangerous Carrollton squad. Staesboro, Redan and Banneker are solid in the next 3 spots.
Carrollton, though not indicitive in the Team Power Rankings actually is in a dead heat with Marist or a clip above. Marist is top heavy in the 800-3200 events. There are 6 other schools very close to the top 4 including Banneker, Redan, Westover and Statesboro.
Here are the 4A Boys Team Power Rankings for last week ending 3-17. After the Coaches Invite Marist closed the gap on Carrollton to where its clear the 4A State Boys meet may come down to the final event. Redan and Eastside fill out the top 4 spots. 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.
For the 4A Boys, nearly every time Ryan Clark of Banneker HS hits the track, he's deserving as 'all class' AOW. But 4A Boys had 2 guys clear 6-8 in the HJ this past week which meets the MileSplit 1st team standards and these gentlemen are Daniel Oduah of Eastside HS at the North Oconee Home meet 3-11 and Freddie McSwain from Liberty County at the Bob 'Bullet' Hayes Invite in Jacksonville, Fla.
Here are the 4A Boys Team Power Rankings thru March 10th. They are a bit deceiving as Marist has some overlap in the Boys 1600 and is really has about 25 points less than displayed. Carrollton looks very strong as does Eagle's Landing, Alexander, and Redan. These rankings were calculated by scoring the rankings as a meet. We scored 16 deep for individuals and 16 deep for relays. For example, for individuals 1st place received 16 points for their team, on down to 1 point for 16th place.
Walton's Tayla Carter crossed the finish line in 11.63 for the top 100m performance of the day Photo by Pinion Photography Athens Christian Makes it a 3-Peat, Walton outlasts MLK in 5A by 1 Point, Redan Sprints and Hurdles away from SW DeKalb in 4A, GAC blows away everyone in AA scoring in just the sprints and relays and Monroe Albany is too deep again adding another title to their padded resume.
Hot indoor action this weekend will feature some of Georgia\'s top track talent. Jordan Scott, of Oconee Co. will be competing in the pole vault after clearing a height of 17\'1\" last season. Jackie Drouin and Ben Hubers, two of Georgia\'s finest distance runners will be competing in their specialties along with Nathan Frasier and Matt Churley, both of Collins Hill. Redan will be sending a contingent of runners in a variety of events as well with some of the top seed times for the meet.
The ladies from Redan finished with a flourish to take the team title at the Georgia Girls state meet. Aleesha Barber led the way with two 1st place finishes in the 100 and 300m Hurdles. McEachern edged out Collins Hill for the runner up trophy but the day belonged to Redan and the Lady Raiders as they won in convincing fashion!
