Although coming up without a National Qualifier, many of our underclassmen had successful outings at Foot Locker South and a few seniors closed out their HS Cross Country careers on a high note. One has to wonder how Reilly Friedman would have fared at McAlpine Park Greenway after he qualified for NXN Nationals out of Cary, NC same day.

Foot Locker South Provides Joy and Heartbreak for Georgia Girls Dec 01, 2014

Over 500 athletes came from Georgia to compete in the Foot Locker South race held at Charlotte's McAlpine Park.  Emma Grace Hurley from Fellowship Christian School came away with the biggest prize earning a top 10 spot placing 7th in the Seeded Girls race clocking a 17:15 earning a trip to San Diego at the Foot Locker National Championship.  It was hard to watch Lindsay Billings fall just short of Q' for Nats at the Finish Line the final 5 meters as she was passed by Abby Gray who made a kamakazi bid the final 25 meters catching Billings who collapsed across the line perhaps unaware Gray was coming hard.  Still, great races by Hurley and Billings.

Marquez Back & Ready To Make His Mark At Foot Locker South Nov 28, 2014

Brandon Marquez didn't rock the Timber Creek singlet this fall opting to run on his own this season. Marquez was the 4A runner-up at the Cross Country Finals as a freshman and finished third his sophomore year in 2013. In 2014, he was no where to be found. He ran one unattached meet this season. The first week of the year he made a statement winning the Wickham Park Cross Country Jamboree in 15:23, a meet he self proclaimed as a "rust buster". As the high school season went on our focus shifted to those competing in FHSAA competition. The junior was quietly preparing for something larger, the Foot Locker South Regional, and a chance to be in the top ten and earn a trip to San Diego for Foot Locker Nationals.
