Week 5 Ga.MileSplit Runners of the Week were achieved by Austin Sprague of St.Pius X at the Hare n' Hound Invitational and Tayler Tuttle of Providence Christian. Sprague clocked a smooth 15:10 for overall Boys Runnerup and Tuttle won the Individual title at the very competitive Gwinnett County Meet in 18:24.
The two JV runners were talking fast--possibly faster than they had run earlier in the day. "Did you hear that both of those guys just broke the course record?" The other nodded. Sorry, kids--this is McAlpine Park. The meet record for the Hare & Hounds Invitational went down on Saturday, and the top two runners both notched the top marks for their home states (S.C. and Ga.) so far this season.

Carmel, IN, girls absolutely crushed the competition in KY this weekend, and looked scary good in the process. Much more action inside!
Sydney Foreman (Ardrey Kell) is formidable on any course, and this is her home course; however, the boys' race could be an out-of-state invasion.
The downhill start at WakeMed helps get the pace set very fast, and that often leads to fast times despite the challenging course.
