|The Girls Varsity Team scored a 3rd place finish at the GA Region 7 AAAAAA Championship Meet, qualifying them to compete at the State Championship Meet on Friday, November 2, 2018.
Webb Bridge Park in Alpharetta was home to the 2018 GA Region 7 AAAAAA Championship Meet. Nine schools entered runners in Varsity, JV and Open divisions, broken up into boys and girls divisions. Webb Bridge Park is a familiar spot to JCHS runners as they do summer running along this course and had some level of familiarity with the hills. The weather was cooperative with temps in the 50s that helped all the runners.
The big news that came out of this meet was the fact the Girls Varsity team, along with three other teams are going to the State Championship meet in November. This is the third year in the row the Girls Varsity team has qualified for States.
Brooke Mooney and Madigan Wallace placed in the Top 14 at the Region Meet, earning them Region Championship Medals.
Congratulations to: Dani Blank, Brooke Mooney, Madigan Wallace, Annabelle Buchanan, Agam Horowitz (pictured above) Charlotte Ferrell and Brooke Halak (not pictured). Additionally the top four JV Girls finishers will travel to the State Championship Meet as alternatives: Catherine Hobbs, Priyanka Gowda, Cameron Shapiro and Ashleigh Hampson.
