JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – While the perennial cross country powerhouse teams have been sizing each other up, the Northview Titans have quietly been moving up the ranks and seem ready to shake things up on top.
At the Fulton County Cross Country Championships, the smaller Lady Titans knocked off both the No. 9-ranked Roswell High and defending champion and the No. 10-ranked Milton High to finish a close second behind No. 7 Centennial Knights.
The Titan men also turned some heads, placing a strong third behind seniors Josh Salter and Jamie Cunningham.
The Lady Titans were led by a first-place finish from star sophomore Lindsay Billings. Billings, who was second at state among returning runners, was also recently named the MileSplit 5A Girls’ Runner of the Week.
In its preseason scouting report, MileSplit stated, “Northview definitely has the makings of a team that can challenge for a podium spot.”
