Girls take 1st and Boys take 3rd at Region! Also, important banquet information.

The girls and boys had a historic day at Mill Creek on Friday.  The girls used points across every event to post a 13 point win over host Mill Creek.  The boys fought hard throughout the meet posting some break out performances in the 4x100 and 4x400 to finish just 5 points out of a trophy.  The coaches couldn't be prouder of the effort of all of our kids.

GIRLS FINISH 3RD AT COUNTY! BOYS 7TH!

For the first time in the last 30 years, North Gwinnett's womens team brought home a trophy from the county championships.  The girls finished 4 points back from Brookwood and 17 points behind Buford.  After amassing 51 points on Day one, the girls stepped up in the events that mattered and took 1st and 2nd in the 800m from Lindsey Fowler and Abby Pinkerton while Alexis Kitchens placed an impressive 4th in the 300 hurdles to go along with a 5th and 8th place in the 3200 by Makenna Kulzer and Sarah Melkerson.  This was enough to seal the deal and outpace GACS, who won state last year in AAA.  On the boys side, Josh Downs finished as county champion in the triple jump and contributed to a 4x100 team that set a new school record to lead the team to a 7th place finish.  Nasir Christian placed 5th in a tough 110m Hurdle final after breaking his own school record in the preliminary round on Saturday.

Yoosang Kim moves into 2nd all time in boys shot put

Yoosang (Eugene) Kim continues the chase of a North Gwinnett legend while still in his first year throwing as he posted a 50'00.5" throw at the Big Orange Relays to place 1st out of 53 throwers.  He now sits three feet behind a North Gwinnett alum that went on to become a two time Olympian in the throws.  His mark currently ranks him 5th in the state of Georgia and his development has been phenomenal as he has improved 14 feet in only 4 weeks in this, his first year throwing.

Worthington goes 12'1" in vault!

12'1" vault.MOV

Alexis and Aliah Kitchens, under the tutelage of Coach Von Ross, broke not one but two school records on Thursday night at the FAT All Comers Meet.  Alexis made her mark in the long jump, clearing a distance of 17'7" This eclipsed the old mark by 3.5 inches and represents her third individual school record as she already owns the 100m and 200m records.  Her sister Aliah Kitchens did her damage in the triple jump clearing a distance of 35'4.75".  These two young ladies have made a tremendous impact on the North Gwinnett program and there's more yet to come.  Several other athletes also had big nights at the FAT All Comers meet as well.
