Flash run to state title


The Peachtree City Flash running team won last weekend’s 11-12 girls USATF state championship and is competing this weekend at regionals in Myrtle Beach. Based on their performance there, the squad could be going back to Myrtle Beach in December for the USATF National Junior Olympics. The runners are students at Booth, Whitewater and Rising Starr middle schools so the future looks bright for high school cross-country in the county.
