All Middle Georgia Cross Country Team

The Macon Telegraph has announced their All Middle Georgia Cross Country Team.  One of the issues with this award is that its focus is on the state meets GISA/GHSA not the entire season.  Despite this flaw, this is a great collection of runners.

Congratulations to Bleckley County’s Carl Ellis Corley as the runner of the year.

College commitments

The following are local runners who have made their college plans, and will continue to run at the next level.  Congratulations to all.

Kate Boland – Augusta University.  Boland capped off a stellar career at Jones County with a 12th place finish at the GHSA AAAAA Championship race in Carrollton, GA.  She is also a strong track competitor.  She was 4th last year in the 1600 and 8th in the 3200 at the State Track and Field Championships in Albany, GA.

Robby Watson – University of Southern Mississippi.  Watson does not run distance events, but did get a scholarship to compete in the shot and discus events.  He is the defending GHSA state champion in both events.
