The top 7 from last week's Rankings stand pat for this week. Union Grove may have tightened the gap a bit on #1 Dunwoody (OFF) after a 20:30 at Atlanta Classic. Woodland, Riverwood and Winder jumped back into the top 10 after racing well Saturday.
This week we are combining the 'Class' Girls 'Runners of the Week' into 1 article. The top Performer amongst these Gals was Emma Grace Hurley and Lindsay Billings.
Here are the first 5A Girls Team Rankings of the season week ending 9/6. Dunwoody ran up to expectations and remains on top from their pre-season ranking. McIntosh shot all the way up to 2nd after their BOA performance.
Incredible day of racing at the 2015 Saucony Battle of Atlanta as over 2900 runners tackled the pristine Nash Farms Battlefield course. Great conditions for a race in late August as it was cloudy with some breezes! A Civil War re-enactor in full regalia started every race with an authentic period Musket which made quite a boom!
The 5A girls look to be a very strong classification with the majority of last year’s top girls all returning. Individuals with a legitimate shot at racing for the win at Carrollton in November include Alyssa Hooker (Lakeside-Evans), Elizabeth Graves (Riverwood), Mary Valli (Starrs Mill), Olivia Terwilliger (Kell), Kelly May Sheehan (Dunwoody), Lauren Wallin (Creekview), Marielle Lewis (Kell), Caroline Nelson (Northgate), Anna Hayden (Riverwood), Ansley Heavern (Dunwoody), Samantha Cameron (Dunwoody).
5A Girls perhaps return the strongest field of Individuals of any class with 15 of the top Girls out of 17 back to lace it up again this season. Defending champ Alyssa Hooker from Lakeside Evans will be chased by a hungry pack including Riverwood duo Elizabeth Graves (2nd) and Anna Hayden. Olivia Terwilliger and Marielle Lewis from Kell (Regan Poteet transferred to West Forsyth) Soph Mary Valli from Starrs Mill and Lauren Wallin from Creekview. Dunwoody boasts a fearsome threesome including Kelly May Sheehan, Ansley Heavern and Samantha Cameron. Caroline Nelson from Northgate is also a threat.
Marielle Lewis of Kell HS raced to the win in the AAAAA Girls 1600 race.
The 1st Annual Big Peach Distance Kickoff was a huge success to begin the Outdoor season as many competitive races were produced by the 12 schools that attended. It was windy as all get out, but eased up a bit after the 800 meter races began. Parkview as usual did a great job hosting the event.
Another great race to continue the day (and thanks to Matt Day for the great commentary on the Live webcast today thru the 6A races!) It was Dunwoody's day to rule once again as they successfully defended their 2013 title as it seems the extra rest paid dividends for the Lady Wildcats today. Alyssa Hooker of Lakeside Evans took control of the race early and hung tough becoming the 5A Overall Champ in 19:45.
The Girls Region Runner of the Week is Lindsay Billings as she won the 6-AAAAAA Overall title clocking a 17:53. This will be the Final "Runners of the Week' article as of course your Class State Champs will overide anything and the Top 10 in each class are named 'All-State.
In the largest and most competitive region in AAAAA (representing 27% of the top ranked schools) the showdown will take place at the popular Boling Park course between 14 schools. 5 of the boys’ teams: Forsyth Central, Creekview, Cambridge, Dalton, and River Ridge; and 3 of the Girls teams: Creekview, Cambridge, and Riverwood have been in the State rankings or watch list for the majority of the season. Who will show up primed and ready to win a Region title?
The Week 9 ending 10-19 Girls 'Runners of the Week' mostly came from the Coach Wood meet. Its hard to deny Northview's Lindsay Billings yet another 'All-Class' honor as she shattered the old course record with a swift 18:00 defeating Morgan Ilse by 24 seconds.
It was a week for the Girls without Lindsay Billings or Emma Grace Hurley competing, and Lovett's Serena Triopdi took advantage on the newly redesigned 5K Westover course. Although it was muddy and slippery on many areas, Tripodi carved out a still pretty fast 18:43 defeating many former Class ROWs this past Saturday...
The Westover Invitational enters its 33rd Year with another large field of teams making the trip to Albany. There have been some changes to the course that has allowed runners to produce PR times over the years. With the City of Albany selling part of the property last spring, the course has now been completely redone. Saturday's meet will determine how fast this new course will be as 46 high schools and 14 middle school teams will take their shot at winning the 33rd Annual event.
For the 4th consecutive year, Milton High School will play host to the Fulton County Public Schools Cross Country Championships this Saturday, September 20th on one of the toughest courses in the state of Georgia.
The 5A 'Runners of the Week' selected both came from the 3rd Annual AT&T Panther Invitational at the pristine Heritage Christian Church course southeast of Peachtree City. Riverwood International School's Elizabeth Graves 3rd place performance and Lakeside Evans stud Christian Bowles overall win in the Varsity Boys race were key.
Week 1 Ending 5A Runners of the week came from meets that were cross state from each other. Anna Hayden of Riverwood International School won Race 1 at Bon Blastow and 5A ruling distance 'King' Logan Poteet of Kell (at the Saucony Kickoff Classic in Savannah) just keeps winning races in GHSA competition. Can he Q' for Foot Locker Nats?
It was a hot one at Clinton Nature Preserve as 42 schools, including many of the top rated teams in their respective classes warmed up early and raced with a few surprises.. Clarkston's Boys came out strong winning their race as did Woodward. Forsyth Central displayed their strength placing 2nd behind Clarkston. Alex Murfee had the quickest Boys time in 15:54. Blessed Trinity's girls bested St.Pius in Race 1 while Cambridge came out on top in Race 2. Kathryn Foreman as usual disapeared early having the best performance of the meet for girls in hotter conditions at 18:24.
