Dawson County senior Frankie Muldoon impressed with her fourth straight region title, putting her in rarified air with some of Georgia’s top runners in history. She did so in dominating fashion, ripping through the course in a personal record 18:22.

The senior’s 5:55 mile pace throughout the meet got her to the finish line a full 1 minute and 30 seconds ahead of the region runner-up. This is incredible! The Lady Tigers, with Muldoon leading the way and Jenna Lecours also placing in the top ten, were region runner-up and state qualifiers.

For Muldoon, the highly-decorated cross country and track & field athlete continues to rack up BLITZ hardware. This is her fourth Player of the Week award going back to 2016, and with two Runner of the Year awards, she’s all said, a six-time BLITZ award winner, putting her among the top of the list in BLITZ history.

GUY GOBER

Guy Gober - Rabun

Crump Tall GIF 2018Rabun County’s “Golden Boy” in long distance has long been the bell cow of the cross country and track long distance team. Since he was in eighth grade, Gober’s name has been on the radar.

Thursday was no exception, as Gober earned his third straight Region 8-AA individual Championship, doing so with a 16:53 time. The senior, just months removed from a long distance state title in track and field back in May, edged Banks County junior Griffin Stephens by a mere five seconds.

Gober’s run earned him representation at the state meet as well, as the Rabun boys didn’t qualify as a team with a fifth-place finish. Gober is a two-time Player of the Week and one-time Track & Field Athlete of the Year.

ZOE SANCHEZ

Zoe Sanchez - Union

Union County junior Zoe Sanchez has been making a name for herself since her freshman season in 2016, but she’s taking it to a new level now. In Thursday’s 8-AA Region Championship, Sanchez blazed past competition on the way to her first career region championship in cross country.

The next finisher came 1 minute and 35 seconds later…unreal! Sanchez’s 19:56 wasn’t even close to her personal best of 19:03, which is very scary for anyone who thinks they have a shot at beating her at state next weekend. Her strong team-leading effort paved the way for the Lady Panthers to secure a state qualification with a second-place team finish. Prior to this run, Sanchez has been a top-five finisher each time at the region meet.
