Robert Toombs Christian Acadmey’s Varsity boys and girls track teams competed in the GIAA 6AA Region Championship at Georgia Southern on Wednesday, April 19th. RTCA’s Varsity Boys finished the season as Region Runner-Up to Trinity Christian School. The Varsity Girls won their 12th Region Championship in a row! Here’s what head track coach, Jacob Wilkinson, had to say about the meet, “It was a really fun meet and I was so proud of our kids. It didn’t go exactly how we planned. However, bringing home two trophies in Region is always exciting,especially when you add a team like Trinity. Trinity was a AAA school last year and their girls won state in AAA and their boys finished state runner-up. So I feel like our kids accomplished something really special this year, competing at a high level against two really good teams. It’s always exciting to see our kids having so much fun out there supporting each other. We were a little intimidated coming into the meet being a single A school competing against AA schools but we had several individual Region Champions this year and some personal records were made and I couldn’t be more proud.”
