Boys Varsity Track, Girls Varsity Track · HISTORY MADE- DUAL STATE CHAMPIONS!


Rain, lightning, set backs, and even injuries were not going to stop our Lions from taking home the gold. Sites were set on the State Title this time last year when the Lions came home with 2 State Runner-up Titles. Immediately upon return from the 2018 state meet our coaches went to work preparing to return this year and win it all- and that’s exactly what they did! Each athlete did their part, and each athlete bought into the TEAM concept. Every place mattered, every second and inch mattered, every detail mattered. For the first time in SACS school history we have earned a State Championship Title in Track & Field. What makes it even more special is BOTH boys and girls were able to clinch the titles. Below you will find some of the top accomplishments from the meet that earned these athletes All State Honors.
