Power in 2A Boys has taken a shift to the northern regions the last 2 seasons.
Bleckley County boys clinch title after their sweep of 100m, Elbert County girls best region rival Oglethorpe County to win title.
Bleckley stays put at #1. Toombs beats Jeff Davis at Wayne County. (via MileSplit)
Bleckley's Girls won their first Team Title in school history. Monticello's Jablonski sisters go 1-2 Overall.
Used some of the conversions from Dataholic to help figure out difference between Ortho, Double Dip, and Covered Bridge. Very tight between Pace and Wesleyan. Bleckley County ran a faster course at the smaller Bay Invitational (FL) and won 1st (17:31) No movement from 1-9....Model breaks into the Top 10 after Rome meet.
Boys: Bleckley showed the AA classification that they are for real coming off big track season and strong summer by traveling north to run at Wesleyan course. The Purple and white from Bleckley come away with the team win showing they can run on some tough hills. After one of the lone public schools here comes the private school teams of Pace, Wesleyan, Lovett, HI, and GAC.
AA Boys was pretty tight at 2014 State with Wesleyan besting Pace by 12 points. But Wesleyan will be loaded again and harder to compete with than 2014. With the exception of Bleckley County, its going to be a private school dominated class as usual icluding Pace, Holy Innocents and Lovett. Can Bleckley County be the first AA Public school since East Jackson under Coach Bob Roller in 2009 to place 2nd or win a title?
No disrespect to 2A Boys, but it remains the weakest Class teamwise/individually (excluding A PUB) Which actually opens up great opportunities for a few good men to step up and get some notoriety. 8 of the top 9 at State have graduated/moved up which really makes it WIDE OPEN. The top 5 fastest returners all clocked their pr's on 'Speedways' so its anyone guess who really are the top 5 harriers. Wesleyan has 3 of the top returners from the State meet making them instantly favorites for a team title with Westminster gone.
Victoria Powell of Lovett HS and Leah Ward from Fitzgerald are the co- overall 2A Girls 'Athletes of the Week. Powell clocked fast times in the 200/400 meters at 25.58/57.48 at the Westminster Invite and Leah Ward cleared a bar of 11-00 last nite at a Fitzgerald Home Meet.
Westminster's boys packed it in as usual and were too deep for Wesleyan to forge a challenge adding yet another state title to their resume. The Cats' pounced on 4 of the top 8 spots led by Individual champ Jordan Flowers. My darkhorse pick Marcus Gouthro from Riverside Military raised his game placing 2nd.
