Last week was pretty busy with three cross country meets in a row; each two days apart! We started off with the DeKalb County JV Cross Country Championships. Then we traveled to Alabama for the JSU Foothills Cross Country Invitational, where Kevin got to see his collegiate coach from GA Tech (GA Tech was competing in the meet) and his high school coach (spectator)... pretty cool meet for him! Then back to Atlanta for the DeKalb County Varsity Cross Country Championships. All the meets ran smoothly. No mis-reads, except for athletes that lost their chips on the courses; but they were pretty easy to add back into the results. Tip from the three meets... Cable ties instead of twist ties for chips :-)
