Heading into Sectionals, here were the 3A Region 'Athletes of the Week'
Four Boys Return with 15-0 bars in the Outdoor Pole Vault this Spring.
This was a quiet week at the top of AAA, but Blessed Trinity did run the Fulton County Championships and several AAA squads faced off at the West Hall Invite early in the week. Banks County's boys and girls have now cracked the top 10 for the first time and there was some movement in spots 6-10 for boys and girls. Watch List squads from each week are all ranked 11th from this point on.
We saw Westminster's Girls for the first time at Carrollton this week and they look poised for a title run as well. Blessed Trinity and Westminster will again be watching one another all season (especially Girls) and attempt to peak at the right time to take a state title. Big movers of the week are Morgan's girls moving up to 5th. Experienced XC stat guys and girls here in the state understand the difficulty of courses like Carrollton and Double Dip, so rankings are definitely taking course ratings into consideration.
Here is a Virtual Meet of the upcoming Carrollton Invitational this Saturday. Includes all Boys teams and top 100 Individuals based on 2015 times.
AAA girls is a similar story with Blessed Trinity and Westminster giving serious quality at the top. Hart County has made giant leaps these past couple of seasons and lands at a comfortable #3 in AAA for now. Dawson could be our 4th podium team with several challengers coming up from spots 5-10. Blessed Trinity's Mary Claire Solomon have a target on her back as favorite for the Individual state title 2 months from now.
AAA may have a first time team Champion on the way as Westside Macon looks great coming out of Sectionals, but never count out battle tested Blessed Trinity or talented Maynard Jackson out of ATL.
