Here is a Virtual State meet for A Private Girls based on Sectionals and Area meets 1600 & 3200 races. Is it time for Athens Academy to win a Girls State title? photo by Matt Almand.
This race had the best course conditions of the meet with Landmark repeating as Team Champs while Griffin McCauley of Paideia took the Overall title.
Anna Marian Block has top performance of the Day on 'Separation Slope Course, while Landmark Christian adds another team title to their trophy case.
A Private Boys is a down somewhat this Fall, individually and in team strength, which will make for an interesting first race of the day at 7:45am.
This is going to be one of, if not the fastest Girls race of the meet upfront as 8 girls have pr's under 19 minutes with 3 going sub 18: !
Region Madness had the 1A Private Boys scramling up and down the Rankings
Landmark Christian is firmly back in control after their Region 5-A Performance.
Word going around is Landmark Christian is close to being healthy again...Athens Academy seems to have found their #5 at Clarke Oconee...
There wasn't much movement in 1A Private girls this past week. Hebron remains #1 after Furman. If Landmark Christian can get healthy by Region/State things could flip..Athens Academy remains 3rd as they beat PCA several weeks ago heads up. Mount Paran, Walker and Athens Christian all moved up.
With 12 of the top 20 1A Private Girls Teams OFF - The decision was made for the rankings to NOT be changed this week. However, watch for movement following this upcoming Saturday! If we don't get flooded again as is the current forecast..Landmark Christian needs to get healthy by Region/State.
Hebron Christian moves into #1, they travel to the Jesse Owens Invite in Alabama this weekend. Landmark Christian drops to 2nd. Atlanta International, Mount Paran, Galloway and Paideia all moved up.
Hebron Christian closed the gap considerably on Landmark after a great 6th at Gwinnett County, and in a race with 150 or more competitive runners it could be a toss up. Kathryn Foreman of Landmark has now not raced for 2 weekends... PCA ran well at Gwinnett but remains 4th as Athens Academy beat them heads up a couple weeks back. A real shakup from 5-7 as Warpath brought out the best in Walker, Fellowship Christian and Mount Paran.
Like in the pre-season outlook, after 3 weeks of competition this Class is wide open for the top positions. Landmark currently has the best team having defeated Paideia which got off to a slow start not having a team score at Saucony Battle of Atlanta, but bounced back a bit at at&t Panther. Hebron Christian should improve throughout the Fall. Athens Academy whipped PCA on the tough Spartan course. 3 unranked pre-season squads broke into the top 10 including a spirited Tallulah Falls squad, Our Lady of Mercy who is happy to have Coach Hofkes back at the helm and Mount Paran Christian who was right behing OLM at at&t Panther.
1A Private Girls may be a great showdown by State. Landmark has 3 of the top 6 Girls in their Class, but Hebron Christian is stronger from 1-5. If Athens Academy develps a #5 its anybody's guess what will happen in November. Providence Christian seems to have a nice gap between the next few teams at this point early. Fellowship Christian could make it out of region as a team this season...
1A Private Boys Team:Much like the 1A Private Boys Individuals, this class currently does not a have a dominant squad coming into the opening weekend of big Invitationals. Defending champ Hebron Christian lost their big guns, Galloway lost Reilly Friedman (1 huge point), Athens Academy lost their top 2 (including Jihoon Choi) Landmark Christian seems to be the favorite going into the season with their top 6 coming back. Galloway and Providence Christian should be Podium and possible title contenders by November, and after a great Outdoor Track season in which their distance squad scored 34 points, Paideia cannot be discounted. After these 4 squads, it gets a little stretched out between each school on paper with Whitefield, Athens Academy, Athens Christian and Hebron Christian jockeying for position.
Here is your 1-A Private Boys Georgia Olympics Preview. They will be no prelims as every event is a Finals. earlier in the season it was a toss up between perennial power Athens Christian and suddenly very competitive First Presbyterian Day (FPD)
Reilly Friedman left the pack early and cruised to the Individual title in 16:29 for the Galloway Scots' easily defending his 2012 title. Landmark Christian came thu in clutchtime running epecially well as a team capturing the coveted 1A Private team title scoring 102 points outdistancing a game Darlington squad by 23 points and 2nd ranked Athens Christian by 28. Spencer Geerlings led the Eagles' win finishing 11th.
