Lady Gators Win Region 2-AAAAA Track Championship

Lady Gators Win Region 2-AAAAA Track Championship

 

Yesterday, the GHSA Region 2-AAAAA Track and Field Championship was held at Statesboro High School. In the girls' division, the Lady Gators were crowned Region Champs. Since making history in 2014 by winning their first ever GHSA Region Title, the Lady Gators have fallen short for the past three years. In 2015, the Lady Gators finish 3rd, and for the next two years, the Lady Gators would finish as Region Runner-up to Statesboro High School. However, the Lady Gator refused to fall short for another year and gave Ware County High School another Region Title. "From the first day of practice, the girls have been focused and determined to change this year's outcome," said Head Coach Alesia Gibson. Throughout the races, the Lady Blue Devils and the Lady Gators would trade leads back and forth. "However, as the finals continued, I found myself getting more nervous," said Coach Gibson. Finally, Arviniec McDonald (senior) said, "calm down Coach Gibson, we got this." From that point on, the girls were determined to make it happen.  Several of the girls left everything on the track and recorded their Season's Best (SB). "Overall, we (the coaches), are very proud of all of our student-athletes' performance." Many of the Lady Gators will be moving on to compete in the Sectionals. All the athletes that finished in the top 4 will be traveling to Eagles Landing HS in McDonough, GA to compete in the sectionals. From there, the top 8 will advance on to the GHSA Track & Field State Finals, which will be held in Carrollton, GA on May 10th through the 12th. We would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone for their support and help this season.
