Georgia is one of the premier football hotbeds in the country and we are providing all the information needed to completely cover the Peach State's incredible talent with a list of every signee in the state. In our coverage you will find a statistical breakdown by the county and high school of each athlete, as well as their future college destination and current commitment or signee status. Recruiters come back to Georgia each year because of the countless stars that have gone to college and been successful. By providing a thorough analysis of this year's signees and by doing so for future recruiting classes, Georgia High School football will continue to get the recognition and spotlight it deserves.

SWIMMING UPDATE

Golden Lions take Riverwood Invitational

 

The St. Pius X boys won the Riverwood Invitational last Saturday at Emory University, swimming away from runner-up Centennial by a comfortable cushion of 79 points. Marietta, Etowah and Northview rounded out the top five, all amassing more than 200 points (St. Pius had a winning score of 320). The Golden Lions got a victory from Zach Halbig in the 50-yard freestyle and Halbig also teamed up with Josh Chatfield, John Flynn and Connor O'Toole to prevail in the 200 medley relay. Grant Summers won the one-meter diving competition for St. Pius X.

 

In the girls meet, Riverwood edged second-place St. Pius X 299.5-283. Not unlike on the boys side, there was very little to choose between the top five teams-all of which finished with more than 200 points. The Northview girls came in third, just ahead of Milton and Pope. Interestingly, the first three individual girls races were won by freshmen. Kaylin Berinhout prevailed for Centennial in the 200 freestyle, Michelle Cho triumphed for Northview in the 200 individual medley and Melissa Brown of Grady took home top honors in the 50 freestyle. 

 

Greater Atlanta Christian and Wesleyan met in a dual meet last Friday, splitting the boys and girls competitions. A thriller of a boys meet saw Greater Atlanta Christian edge Wesleyan 152-146, as the Spartans wrapped up victory in the second to last race with Landon Keller's win in the 100 breaststroke. Keller also won the 200 individual medley in addition to participation on a pair of victorious relay teams-the 200 medley and 200 freestyle. The Spartans got other individual triumphs from Hunter Dye (200 and 500 freestyle), Jake Jacobi (50 freestyle), Austin Hall (100 butterfly) and Marshall Gray (100 freestyle).

 

Wesleyan's girls made their battle against Greater Atlanta Christian far less interesting. They won every single event-including freshman Abby Gardner in one-meter diving-to prevail 207-74. Caroline White (50 and 100 freestyle) and Ellie Bradach (200 and 500 freestyle) both won a pair of individual races for the Wolves.


The 44
th Annual Metro Swimming Atlanta Swimming and Diving Championships will be held this Friday and Saturday at Westminster. Another loaded field featuring Marist, Milton, Wesleyan and Woodward Academy will be on hand. Westminster and Marist finished first and second, respectively, in both the boys and girls competitions last year. Milton, Northview and Woodward finished third through fifth, respectively, overall. 



HARRIER HONORED
Landmark's Foreman honored by Gatorade

 

In its 29th year of honoring the nation's best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with USA TODAY High School Sports, today announced Kathryn Foreman of Landmark Christian School as its 2013-14 Gatorade Georgia Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year. Foreman is the first Gatorade Georgia Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year to be chosen from Landmark Christian School.

 

The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the racecourse, distinguishes Foreman as Georgia's best high school girls cross country runner. Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year award to be announced in January, Foreman joins an elite alumni association of past state award-winners in 12 sports, including Ryan Hall (1999-00, 2000-01, Big Bear HS, Calif.), Derek Jeter (1991-92, Kalamazoo HS, Mich.), Candace Parker (2001-02, Naperville Central HS, Abby Wambach (1997-98, Our Lady of Mercy, N.Y.) and Mark Sanchez (2004-05, Mission Viejo

HS, Calif.).

 

The 5-foot-3 sophomore distance runner won a second consecutive Class A private schools individual state championship this past season with a time of 18:42.18. Also the Runner of the Year as named by the Atlanta Track Club, Foreman placed eighth at the Foot Locker South Regional championships in 17:19, and then finished 32nd at the national Foot Locker Cross Country Championships in 18:35. She concluded the season unbeaten against Georgia competition.

 

Foreman has maintained a 4.21 weighted GPA in the classroom. A member of her choir, the National Beta Club, Key Club International and multiple peer-leadership groups at her school, she has volunteered locally on behalf of her church, an assisted living facility, the Atlanta Track Club and the City of Refuge shelter. Foreman has also visited Honduras on a servicemission

trip.

 

'It is amazing how much she has accomplished in the short period of time that she has been running, but she is the epitome of a distance running champion,' said Shelly Cranford, head coach of rival Bleckley County High. She is very dedicated to what she does, and it shows by what she has accomplished this year. She is not only the best cross-country runner in Georgia, but she is also one of the best cross country runners in the entire nation.'

 

Foreman will begin her junior year of high school this fall. The Gatorade Player of the Year program annually recognizes one winner in the District of Columbia and each of the 50 states that sanction high school football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, baseball, softball, and boys and girls track & field, and awards one National Player of the Year in each sport. 

 

The selection process is administered by the Gatorade high school sports leadership team in partnership with USA TODAY High School Sports, which work with top sport-specific experts and a media advisory board of accomplished, veteran prep sports journalists to determine the state winners in each sport.

 

Foreman joins Gatorade Georgia Girls Cross Country Runners of the Year Allie Buchalski (2012-13, Johns Creek High School), Grace Tinkey (2011-12 & 2010-11, First Presbyterian Day School), Nicky Akande (2009-10, Collins Hill), Amanda Winslow (2008-09, Collins Hill), and Emily Reese (2007-08, Chamblee) as athletes who have won the cross country award since its

inception in 2007.
