Atlanta Track Club Names 49 High School Athletes to All-Metro Track and Field Team

Return to the Blog Home Page

ATLANTA – May 16, 2017 – Atlanta Track Club has selected 49 deserving student athletes, 25 boys and 24 girls, to receive All-Metro High School Track and Field Team honors. The honorees were chosen by Atlanta Track Club, and now coaches, parents, media and the general public will be given the opportunity to vote to determine which athletes are named Most Outstanding Track Athlete and Most Outstanding Field Athlete.

"These hard-working, talented athletes are the future of our organization and the future of track and field in the United States. We look forward to celebrating their accomplishments next month and following their performances in the sport as they continue their high school career or go on to college athletics," said Rich Kenah, Atlanta Track Club’s executive director. "With so much talent, it will be for coaches and the public to decide which of these students will be given top honors and win a special scholarship."

The All-Metro athletes were selected based on criteria including performance at the state meet, season bests and head-to-head competition. You can find the full list of athletes below and on ga.milesplit.com. Full bios can be found here. Coaches and the community can go online from May 16-22  and vote for their choice for Most Outstanding Track Athlete and Most Outstanding Field Athlete. One boy and one girl will be named for each category for a total of four awards; each recipient will receive a $1,500 scholarship.

The 2017 All-Metro High School Track and Field Team will be honored at a banquet at The Stave Room in Midtown Atlanta on June 7. The student athletes who have been named Most Outstanding Track Athlete and Most Outstanding Field Athlete will be announced at the banquet as well as the recipients of the Coach’s Dedication Awards. Nominations can be submitted online via the athlete voting form. (Note: coaches may only win this award once. See a full list of past winners here.)
