The Lady Hounds placed 21st and the Greyhounds 26th last Saturday afternoon in the GHSA Class AAAAA state cross country meet held in Carrollton.

It was the first time since 2007 that both the Jones County girls and boys qualified for state in the same season.

Sophomore Kate Boland ran a 21:27 to finish 46th in the girls’ 5K to lead the Lady Hounds, and freshman Hunter Kimball ran an 18:17.98 to finish 88th in the boys’ race to lead the Greyhounds.

Lindsey Billings, also a sophomore, won the girls’ race in 19:12.3 to lead Northview to the team title. Lakeside-Evans was second, followed by Dunwoody.

Flowery Branch won the boys’ team title, followed by Clarkston and Northview. Kell sophomore Logan Poteet was the individual winner with a time of 16:13.38.

Rounding out the top five for the Lady Hounds were four freshmen – Kaitlyn Holder, 57th at 21:42.23; Tia Mallory, 129th at 23:14.03; Frannie Pittman, 132nd at 23:21.23; and Holly Gurnee, 169th at 24:19.98.
