Return to the Blog Home Page

NOVEMBER 10, 2020 - ATLANTA -- The Atlanta area's best cross country runners will be honored virtually by Atlanta Track Club this month. The Club announced the 2020 Powerade All Metro High School Cross Country Team today which features 42 athletes from 26 schools. First, second and third team rosters will be named during an online ceremony broadcast on Atlanta Track Club's YouTube channel at 8 p.m. on Friday, November 20.

A list of all honorees - 21 boys and 21 girls - is included at the end of this news release. It features seven athletes who won individual state titles at last weekend's GHSA Cross Country State Championship Meet.

In addition, the Club will announce the Most Outstanding Boys and Girls Athletes at the virtual banquet. Coaches and the public will vote for the award. Public voting is open today through Friday on 11Alive's website.

"This season created new challenges for high school runners," said Rich Kenah, Atlanta Track Club's Executive Director. "Despite lost practice times and reduced opportunities to compete, the young athletes on this year's Powerade All Metro Cross Country team stood on every start line with confidence and positivity and crossed the finish line with personal bests, course records and state championships."

The Powerade All Metro Cross Country Banquet is Atlanta Track Club's longest running tradition, dating back to the Club's founding in 1964. The Club also hosts the Powerade All Metro Track & Field Banquet in June.
