Class A State Track: Farragut Boys, Oak Hall Girls Take Team Honors Andy Warrener May 9, 2016

Track & Field Team Scores: 1A Boys - TFA Returns Core Nucleus From 2015 Runner-Up Squad Todd Grasley Jan 21, 2016

The First Academy boys finished 6.5 points behind Westminster Academy in 2014 and a mere half point off the top spot again in 2015. Needless to say the Royals are hungry for the team title and will rely on a well balance attack and core nucleus from that runner-up squad. Jahquez Durham (sprints), Allen Wiggins (throws), and Jonathan Griffin-Heard (hurdles/pole vault), along with the relays have the most potential to score big points. Maclay has a very strong distance squad and the classifications top pole vaulter in Darin Meeker and will give them a run at the top spot.

In Her Own Words: Brittany McGee - Finding Time Todd Grasley Mar 13, 2015

I have been running track for the majority of my life since first grade and now I'm finally a senior! It's crazy to think that I will be done with high school so soon. Something that most people wouldn't really guess about me when they talk to me or see me is that I've gone to a military school that I board at five days a week since I was a freshman.

Admiral Farragut's Brittany McGee Set to Defend Heptathlon Title at New Balance Nationals Andy Warrener Jun 13, 2014

The 2014 Class A state finals might not have gone quite as well as Admiral Farragut's Brittany McGee had hoped. She only got in two jumps in long jump on a wet track and she injured her ankle during the 300m hurdle final and both hurdle marks in the 100m and 300m were off her personal best of the season. Still, McGee took home a third place medal in long jump and she was still plenty better than the rest of the field in the hurdle events, winning both.
