2012 GISA AA XC State Campionship

Darton College in Albany hosted the 2012 GISA State Championship on a manicured course that would impress the crowd in Augusta.  Running under a cool, dark sky, Arthur Leach raced from the gun into the horde of  often unfriendly elbows, knees and metal spikes. His fleet feet knew no quarter as he led our young Cougars into the hunt for spoils. Running in twenty-first place at kilometer one, Arthur appeared confident and relaxed; at the second kilometer, he was in the top fifteen, racing steadily from the banshee-like mob. By the 3 kilometer...

Morgan Carrig was the lone standard bearer for the Lady Cougars and earned  a hard-fought bronze medal for her valiant...

9/6/2012: Varsity Cross Country Meet at MSA

Yesterday, despite the hot and humid conditions, the Cougar harriers handled the hills-and their competition admirably.  Competing with little visible glory, Morgan Carrig placed twelfth among the all-comers meeting of athletes.  Perhaps, as of yet, we Cougars can convince at least two other courageous ladies to join in the camaraderie and esprit de corps to field a girls’ team in the Atlanta Athletic Conference (for a mere two races).  Five competitors are necessary to cross the finishing line for larger GISA meets.  The boys’...
