KELI GEORGE – LUMPKIN COUNTY

Lumpkin County freshman Keli George is the latest cross country runner to make a name for herself. She placed 6th in a meet last week with a time of 21:57, which is a new PR for her. This came at the Pickens and Grinnin’ Invitational. This is George’s first POW award.

BEN DAVIS – JEFFERSON

It’s just a matter of time before Ben Davis earned this award. The junior has been running wild in 2022, and showed how good he is last week with a 16:43 time that resulted in a first-place overall finish at the Jefferson Invitational. He followed that up with a 16:29 time, 3rd-place finish at the Coach Wood Invitational. That marked a personal record for Davis, who earns his first POW award.
