Weather looked to be an issue coming into this meet late Friday, but, after the course got a good soakin' overnight, it seemed to drain quite well by the early 'dark' start of the Championship Boys race.

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...  

Ga.MileSplit Weekend Region Wrap Bruce Taylor Oct 27, 2014

Region meets listed on the XC Calendar began this past Thursday.  1-AAAAAA, 4-AAAAA, 2-AAAAAA, 6-AAAAA and 5-AAA took care of business early giving their athletes an extra week of rest for those Q' for Carrollton on 11-8.  There were no real surprises in the outcome of any except for just 2 Girls teams coming out of 5-AAA. Region time always brings into question the GHSA qualifying process as a few teams make it in just by having 5 runners cross the finish line as opposed to teams in super tough regions being left out that would more than likely be top 10 (even possibly Podium contenders) at State.  Abbas Abbkar of Clarkston is pictured above.

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.

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.
