FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. - More than 3,000 runners representing more than 190 Georgia high schools gathered in Carrollton on Nov. 9 to participate in the cross country state championship.

Representing Pinecrest Academy was senior Jessica Zalzman, who ran the course in 20:30, placing her in the top 10 girls in the GHSA Class 1A.

Despite a mid-season injury that prevented Zalzman from training adequately for the event, she was able to make all-state team for the fourth time in her high school running career due to intense physical therapy and swimming.
