We have another red wagon to haul table and two banners to meets for someone to be in charge for the rest of the season.
Just step right up and volunteer to do that. It will take up very little room in your garage and you just need to have it there when the runners arrive or slightly before.
Shout out to the Beson family for being tent masters!! It was so nice seeing the sight of the big red tent as we pulled up first thing.

Thanks to all runners and their parents for a great year of training and racing.
Girls capped off their season with a strong performance at AREA 1 meet with a 2nd place finish. Girls followed that performance up by placing 20th at the 7A State Championships. Top girl finisher was Sarah McCartney in 67th place,
Boys finished 11th All-Classification team average at State. That places your boys' as an ELITE program. We overcame finishing 6th at the Gwinnett County Championships to finishing 5th in 7A State. Absolutely a big deal. Loved that our boys were the first Gwinnett Co. team to finish yesterday. Something to be proud of, and not to be taken lightly.
The boys originally tied for 4th in 7A, but due to tie breaker ended in 5th place.
Senior James Cragin placed 6th and Sophomore Myles Collins 10th. Both received medals at the awards ceremony.
