This year's AAA meet will be very exciting! The forecast calls for mud and AAA will be the 5th and 6th races of the day out of 14 so it will be sloppy, but not as bad as later in the afternoon.
The Final Podium spot is wide open in AAA Girls after last week.
AAA Girls is very similar to Boys as Westminster and Blessed Trinity's deep and traditionally strong Girls programs are just on another level than everyone else. Westminster returns everyone and Blessed Trinity their top 6. It will be fun to see if they run heads up before Region as its seems they avoid each other during the regular season. Hart County is a strong 3rd but it would take cloning Audrey Honiotes x 2 to come even close to the Cats and Titans. There seems to be large gaps between other top 10 schools aside from Savannah Arts and Coahulla Creek at 4/5. 8-AAA's Dawson County, Morgan County, Fannin County and East Jackson will fight at Region for State spots. Decatur is a top 10 team early. Pierce County placed 15th at State and's a bit of a mystery due to the courses they compete on during the season. Oconee County graduated their core and after making the Podium in 2014 and will need to rebuild.
Maynard Jackson HS looked great in the Rankings mid-season, and brought it when it mattered down in Albany earning the AAA Girls team championship overtaking perennial contender Blessed Trinity and upstart Westside Macon.
Westminster Girls handled Blessed Trinity with ease at their home course. But, this has happened before...was Blessed Trinity sandbagging? Dawson County Girls clubbed Fannin and Banks County at Region moving up. Pierce County may be in the Rankings for the first time ever after their region meet and I have to question the course length..Westminster gave Blessed Trinty fits at Region in the boys race thus jumping over East Jackson. Savannah Arts easily won their region and are a darkhorse to make the Podium. We'll find out how they handle the Carrollton hills and pressure..SE Bullock snuck in the top 10 after a fast region time (course?)
