COCHRAN - On your mark get set go! It's time for high school cross country to wrap up their regular season and one Central Georgia school is looking to rack up another pair of region championships.
The Running Royals of Bleckley County will host the 4-AA Region Finals tomorrow on their campus. Under the direction of head coach Shelly Cranford, the Lady Royals have won 10 region titles in a row and the fellows have won 7 straight.
Nine seniors comprise both teams and don't want to be on either team that drops the streak.
"I feel good about our chances", says Cranford. "If we show up and do what I feel like we can do then we'll end up with good results. Training has been going good this year. I feel great about the boys and girls team. They've done everything I've asked them to do. They've been through a lot of pain, torture and suffering but they come through it and I feel like they are ready to go."
The course is a 5K and the races will start at 5pm for the boys and 5:30pm start for the girls.
