On Saturday your mighty Greyhounds took on the wet Allatoona Creek Park trails for the Cobb County Championships. Our JV girls started out the day with zest and finished 3rd overall as a team behind Maeve, Rachel, April, Caroline and Linsey. Next up were our JV boys who honestly put forth one of the most exciting and dominating team races of the day. Our super frosh, Davis, WON the race in impressive fashion with Dermot (6th) and Aiden’s (7th) providing very exciting finishes as well. Reed , Andrew and Charlie showed team depth by all finishing in the top 15 overall. Great TEAM win for the young Greyhound pups!!!!!!
Our lady Hounds were next up and at the gun our top 3 girls were in the lead pack of a competitive field of athletes. Once the top group made it to the first mile there was no doubt as our top 3 were leading the entire field. Quite an impression as three Greyhounds finished 1-3, Charlotte is the County Champion with Lorel 2nd and Addison 3rd. We had Catherine back after missing last week to run well in the 4th spot then Claudia, Maddy and Kaylen finished together in the 4/6/7 spots all within 5 seconds of each other. Nice work ladies we will continue with our persistence to be ready as the meets get more and more competitive. TEAM 3rd place.
Next up were our Varsity boys who took off in an equally competitive group to the girls and were able to hold their own in a close team race to finish 3rd overall. Carter finished 3rd individually with Benny 8th and William (season PR) 13th. Connor and Sean (1:00 faster than last year!!!!) continued to show their strength as they again both finished under 18. After missing the last 2 races (ACT and SAT) Alec was able shake off some dust and to run in the 6th spot with Michael 7th for the Hounds. TEAM 3rd place.
