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.
