6A Boys Athletes of the Week 3-17 Bruce Taylor Mar 18, 2014

Every athlete who won their category this past week ending 3-17 for the 6A Boys division had performances very worthy of the 6A Boys overall 'AOW'. But one stoodout as Daniel Ellis of Collins Hill set the MileSplit National leading time in the 2000 meter Steeplechase at the Coaches Invitational in 6:13.96

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  http://www.weather.com/weather/wxdetail3/USGA0096  6A...we have been saving the Best for Last, and here it is from Ga.MileSplit.com,  thanks to Pre1962 as expounds his unique and detailed breakdown for the Community....Ga.MileSplit.com 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. This often is a thankless endeavor, as the Community is eager to differ on selections. We care about the kids, programs, coaches, fans and parents who support the programs and athletes. Good Luck to everyone in Carrollton and once again congrats to the Class A Winners, Podium teams, All-State individuals and volunteers that made it happen!

Week 2 Ga.MileSplit Runners of the Week Bruce Taylor Sep 4, 2012

Sarah Foreman dominated the Mixed MS 2 Mile on the tough Landmark Course and is the Girl's MS "ROW" In a relatively light week of racing due to the Labor Day weekend, here are the choices for the Week 2 Ga.MileSplit.com Runners of the Week.  Many athletes were very impressive at the UGA Invitational  Equestrian Fields course and the Landmark Cross Country Invitational Garwood Stadium Course was a beast of a challenge....The Performances of the Week were turned in by Josh Brickell and Katherine Yost at UGA.  

The UGA Invite Produced Some Smokin' Times on a Fast, Tight, and Possibly Short Track Ronnie Brown Sep 2, 2012

The UGA Cross Country course is on the grounds of the University’s Equestrian Center in Bishop, GA, just a few miles off the UGA campus....Saturday morning found the course in perfect condition, with a tightly-mown path, and firm footing (contrasted with the mudfest of 2009!) The collegiate races got underway at 7:59 AM, with lots of familiar names on the rosters of the UGA, Georgia Tech and Mercer squads....

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...
