Lovett has really improved from 2013 and as the season ground away took over the top spot in the 2A Team Power Rankings and haven't looked back. But, they suffered a big loss when Victoria Powell (got injured?) and was unable to compete at Sectionals costing Lovett up to 20-25 points at State. This brings perennial AA powers Wesleyan and Westminster right back into the chase. Thomasville has the potential to be a Podium squad as does Greater Atlanta Christian, Laney (who has speed) Monticello who boasts the triple threat Tiarra Whitlock, and Jefferson. Taylor DeLoach of St.Vincent's is another great athlete who could score up to 30 points by herself.
There was some good racing happening down in Barnesville at Section A as 21 National Elites were achieved. Taylor DeLoach of St.Vincent's had a career day going 20-1 in the LJ and turned in 2 fast short Sprints Q' times. Thomasville got their top athletes out as did Jeff Davis, Monticello and Bleckley County. On the Boys side Fitzgerald, Lamar County, Bleckley County will move on to Jefferson with their best. In Section 'B' at Norcross the usual suspects Lovett, Westminster and Wesleyan advanced their top girls to Albany and Laney will bring some heat. For the boys seems like caught a good tailwind in the 100 meters as all the runners had big prs including a 10.55 by Jaquivius Cannon of East Laurens. GAC performed well in the Sprints, Westminster dominated in distance events, Calhoun will bring speed and Keyth Fightmaster, Westminster and Jefferson q'd many Field Events scorers.
Class AA will be a battle of attrition at Sectionals but the AA 'Region' Athletes of the Week should qualify easily for State. Hailey Branch is beginning to show signs of peaking after sweeping the 6-AA distance events including a 11:10 3200m. Charlie Woerner from Rabun County scored big in 3 events at the 8-AA meet. Including winning the 110 Hurdles, Shot and placing 2nd in the Discus.
its going to be interesting who makes it out of Sectionals in Girls AA. Once again, the power resides in Region 6 with evenly matched squads, though WEsleyan pulled a minor upset taking the team title. Westminster, Lovett and GAC need to qualify their top athletes at Sectionals. Bleckley County, Thomasville, Fitzgerald, Jeff Davis, Jefferson, Monticello and Spencer have the potential to make the AA Girls Sectionals a train wreck.
