Very little movement in the Final Class Ranking of the Fall except for Roswell shooting up to 7th after a great race at 5-AAAAAA. Marietta looks unbeatable on 11-7. The 2-4 Podium spots will be wildly contested on what's forecasted to be a beat up, sloppy course in the afternoon.

Etowah ran great moving up 3 spots after their performance at Coach Wood. North Paulding tore it up bbreaking bad into 9th. *All teams designated 11th are in no particular order*

6A Girls Team Rankings Week Ending 9/13 Georgia Ranking Committee Sep 14, 2015

6A Girls was very similar to the Boys as carrollton and Double Dip had a heavy influence on this week's team rankings. West Forsyth had a solid win at Ortho, Milton traveled well to Knights Crossing taking 2nd. There was no movement from 5-10 and the 'Watch list changed a bit with Alpharetta now on the 'Radar'

Carrollton ReCap, Including Championship Races Coverage Bruce Taylor Sep 14, 2015

Over 1400 runners gathered at the State Course on Saturday having great mid-September racing conditions in very uncrowded race situations for this venue. (excluding Championship Boys) Anticipation was high for those races with many top squads and Indivduals competing.Brief ReCap (more coming Monday)

6A Girls Pre-Season Outlook Mike Demarest Aug 7, 2015

A surprising amount of prominent athletes on the 6A circuit return for the 2015 campaign. Based on those returners, I’ve devised the following pre-season rankings heading into this season along with a couple highlights of those returners. NOTE: These are NOT State predictions which often weigh state meet history and other intangibles into play. This is my attempt to best make sense of the top returning teams without merely looking at a virtual meet.

6A Boys Pre-Season Outlook Mike Demarest Aug 6, 2015

While 6A lost some talent at the top, a surprising amount of prominent athletes on the 6A circuit return for the 2015 campaign. Based on those returners, I’ve devised the following pre-season rankings heading into this season along with a couple highlights of those returners. NOTE: These are NOT State predictions which often weigh state meet history and other intangibles into play. This is my attempt to best make sense of the top returning teams without merely looking at a virtual meet.

6A Girls- Northview's Squad Rolls Right In Behind Lindsay Billing's 18:29 Sweeping Top Honors Bruce Taylor Nov 9, 2014

Everyone was still trying to catch their breath after the fast and furious action of the 6A Boys championship race when the 6A ladies began to gather at the start line and form up stretching, doing the obligatory runouts, then huddling together (some with'some without their coaches) having final moments together getting charged up or praying even) As the final calls were made the time had arrived to put it all on the line (for some seniors perhaps their final Cross Country race) Most in the loop expected a team battle between top ranked Region 6 foes Northview, South Forsyth and a red hot Milton squad or to observe another work of art by Lindsay Billings. Sometimes one gets what they hope for, a great team battle and watching one of the state's best hopes for a Foot Locker National finalist.

Week 7 Ga.MileSplit Girls 'Runners of the Week' Georgia Ranking Committee Oct 9, 2014

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...

Carrollton Orthopedic Summary- Sukhi Khosla Shines, Lindsay Billings Delivers Bruce Taylor Sep 14, 2014

69 schools competed at the rejuvenated Carrollton Orthopedic Invitaional from as far south (or more) as Melbourne Florida. Some incredible racing occured, but Ga.MileSplit was unable to be onsite for this event and reports as to what transpired have been non-existent on the Discussion Board. A few things are certain, Lindsay Billings ran great winning the Championship Girls Overall title and Leon County (FL) Sukhi Khosla was untouchable as he dominated with a season best time of 15:53. 

Carrollton Orthopedic Invitational Preview Bruce Taylor Sep 11, 2014

After maybe having a few less teams attend than in the past, the Carrollton Orthopedic Invitational is 67 HS teams strong again and should have over 2000 runners registered for action Saturday. Many of the top programs in Georgia will run their entire squads and a few will hold out their top runners for another day... The Sunshine State has  arguably three of the best boys teams in the state, two of the best girls teams in the state , the top freshman in the state on the girls side, and a potential foot locker finalist in Sukhi Khosla on the boys side lacing it up with our state's student-athletes. Its a star studded event that could turn into a barnburner depending on what teams from Ga choose to run in the Championship race....

Week 2 Ga.MileSplit All-Class Team Rankings Georgia Ranking Committee Sep 2, 2014

All-Class Rankings are perhaps the most difficult to gauge every Fall as many schools may only go head to head once or twice with Nike-Fleet Feet the final realistic indicator as most top squads use Last Chance as a tempo run and let all their JVs get a taste of the State course.  6A schools rule the roost this week with Marietta's boys strong at Saucony Battle of Atlanta and West Forsyth's Girls having a great run at the Stage Races. 

Week 2 Ga.MileSplit 6A Team Rankings Georgia Ranking Committee Sep 2, 2014

In the first edition of the GHSA Class Team Rankings (we have always let at least 2 full weekends of racing before ranking) Marietta's Boys should come as no surprise on top after blowing away even 4A North Oconee by nearly 80 points.
