Oh and to add one more level to this, these three athletes finished with a time that was only a half second apart. That was a top race from top ranked athletes! And by the way, Dominic is ranked 5th in the A-AA state rankings!

And I thought the girls race was exciting… how can you beat that!

As I mentioned in some comments in the preview article, I thought Hume-Fogg would be the overall team winner and they certainly did win. It was a bit of a question though since they scored 90 points and Knoxville Catholic had and Martin Luther King a close Their second runner was David Tyrus Although all the points count in the team totals, Knoxville Catholic squeaked ahead of MLK thanks to the their tight finishers at the top.

Once the gun went off, it seems all the top runners — all top 20 placers — ran quickly to the front and seemed to set a pretty quick pace.

The lead pack did that for quite a while until Emma decided to pull ahead of everyone else and kept increasing her lead once she passed the two mile point. Just as they topped over the crest of that last steep hill and made the downhill turn, Emma was clearly in the lead but it was a tight race for second.

Claire was in the runner up spot at that point but Reagan seemed to have a kick starting even though she was just coming off that killer hill! And as Reagan took the turn around that last cedar bush, you could tell the senior athlete had a determined look on her face and that kick started to find another gear even though you know the chill in the air just tightens up those legs at the end of the race!

She passed by Claire as they went up the long gradual last hill to capture that runner up spot with a Lauralys Shallow was a few seconds back to grab fourth in A great job by Emma, Abby Sparrow Actually, their seventh place finisher came in 35th overall… so a pretty impressive run among all that team! Brentwood Academy came in runner up with 80 points and Girls Preparatory School finished third with 93 points.

Those two decided to stay in that order all the way to the finish line with Dylan finishing in In that last stretch, Pierce was able to pass a couple of guys to get within less than a tenth of a second to overtaking Will and giving him the fourth place spot with The fifth place spot went to a gutsy 8th grader who did his best to stay near the top almost the whole race — Carter Cheesman Carter was less than a second ahead of 6th place finisher Will Peters from Montgomery Bell.

That was a fun finish to watch! MUS was probably the only team to give them a run for their money with their strength at the top but just needed more depth to make it happen.

With a young Carter racing like he did Saturday, looks like BA will be holding that top spot for a while. The remaining three that scored for BA were Joshua Bell Only one of those BA boys is a senior and so the other D2AA teams will need to start working now to give these boys a run next year!

What do the numbers 1, 2, 6, 7, 10 and 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 have in common? Not a whole lot, other than they add up to 47 and that number is better than the point total for either the boys or the girls D2-A second place finisher. Webb School of Knoxville came into this meet an obvious favorite and they clearly did not disappoint for both the girls and the boys races.

The Webb girls got first and second — Peighton Meske The Webb boys did exactly the same with Reece Rose Having all five runners — boys and girls — in the top ten certainly makes it hard to beat and it showed as both got the team titles with ease!

Earlier that day I ran into the coach in the hotel and when I asked what he expected, he said he had some high hopes but you never know. Then he took his athletes out for an upbeat but short nerve relaxing jog. Confident but cautious and just wanting the athletes to have some fun on a cold and windy day.

University School of Nashville was the only team to get close but clearly not enough to catch Webb. But then again, cold and windy….

The AAA girls division had some pretty potent athletes with a handful ranked in the top 20 for the state.

With Morristown West having three girls from their team all ranked in the top 13, they were the favorite to take the team title but they also had contenders for the top spot in the individual contest. From near the first mile, a fairly large pack of athletes from Beech, Morristown-West, Ooltewah, Hillboro, and Ravenwood. This pack stayed together for a short while until spreading out a little as they approached the finish. Cherie Wilson certainly made sure Morristown West was on top with her sprint to the finish win in Beech athlete Julia Rizor was third overall in There were only two senior athletes in the top 5 and only five in the top 15 overall at this race.

That only means that the competition can only get better and better in the next several years! Vincent's Benedictine Military's sister school runs well at Carrollton and woukd their be a surprise from a Mid GA squad? Blessed Trinity wins on 6th runner tiebreaker over East Jackson. Wins Team and Rendon Rules Overall Nov 12, 1A Boys Public hit the start line after all the dust had cleared from the afternoon, but did have cooler temps than the previous 2 classes unless some self-appointed weathermen out there beg to differ like on The Discussion Board.

The venue had nearly cleared after the A Private Awards were finishedbut these guys were ready to race on a course that very few of them had experience on. Many of the top runners from the meet had graduated, and 2 time defending Champ Georgia Military was a bit down this season like many A Public squads having a difficult job of fielding a full squad.

New champions would be crowned on this day Flowery Branch ran the toughest course at Region and ran very well as a pack. Dunwoody is going to be the most rested team for sure and returned everyone from their squad except for Alex Cameron. Starrs Mill's gals may have something to say about that as the Panthers ran great at Region 4. Lakeside Evans star Alyssa Hooker appears to have a target on her back based on her Think of all you old timers, lol of the schools that have dominated this class in the 21st century Some serious wars were waged between these traditional powers.

But it was all in good sportsmanship on the Boys side. It took until after region for Wesleyan to take the 1 spot in the rankings and they backed it up Saturday at Carrollton.

Spencer Fields of Darlington must have felt like a man alone soon after the start as he just never looked back winning the Overall title. Landmark Christian a month ago looked unbeatable having a healthy top 5. But Athens Academy has closed the gap considerably this month showing signs they could give Landmark fits if they are missing 1 of their top 5.
