Dalton Gasaway (center) and Dillon Gasaway (to the right) finished 1st and 3rd respectively in the 200 meter dash to help the Dragons to the region championship as well as qualifying for this Saturday's sectional meet.
The Track Dragons and 'Nettes knew they had talent, but expected to duke it out event by event in the Girls' and Boys' 7AAAA Region Championships hosted by Southeast Whitfield last Monday and Tuesday in Dalton. In the end, both the Dragons and 'Nettes bested the 7 other region schools by a convincing margin as both took home 1st
place hardware. The top 4 finishers in each event at region earned the right to participate in next Saturday's 4A Sectional A Meet hosted by Carrollton HS including GHSA 4A Regions 1, 2, 5 and 7. The top 8 finishers at sectionals will then qualify for the GHSA Girls' State Track Meet (5/5 – 5/7) in Albany, or the Boys' State Track Meet (5/12 – 5/14) in Jefferson.
