Breanna Thornton of Eastside HS in Covington signd her NLI to compete in Track and Field at Georgia Southern University.
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.
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.
The overall 4A Girls athlete of the week was none other than Venida Fagan of Chamblee HS. At the very competitive and sometimes wild and unpredictable DeKalb County Championships she clocked swift times in the 200/400 meter dashes at 24.81 and 56.42.
Rockdale County is definitely on the map this 2014 Outdoor season after the NewRock County Championships. Candace Hill and Lawrence Crawford were just 'sick' clocking sizzling times in the 100/200 meter dash events for Rockdale County HS! 17 MileSplit National Elite performance standards were met which is unprecedented for this meet. Stay tuned Sports fans...
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.
Nylah Chavis from Eastside HS in Covington signed her NLI to compete for Georgia State in Track and Field.
