Robert Toombs Christian Academy’s track teams ended the season on a high note after several obstacles. The Varsity Girls finished the season as State Runner-Ups and the Varsity Boys finished third overall. Here’s what Head Track Coach, Jake Wilkinson, had to say about the meet: “I’m very proud of both teams! It didn’t go exactly as planned for our girls, the team had several girls out with injuries and some trying to push through with their injuries they got at Region. But I’m proud of each of them for fighting through it and finished as State Runner-Up. The boys finishing third overall did way better than anyone thought they would. We also came away with seven individual State Champions! On top of that, we had two athletes set two new State records, one in triple jump by senior JaShaun Powell and the second by our boys 4X100m relay team. RTCA now secures the State record for the girls and boys GIAA-AA 4X100m relay! Junior Aaron Hankerson won the high points for the GIAA-AA boys. To say I am proud would be an understatement. I am so proud of these athletes and how they represented our school. I will miss our four seniors, Nicole Acosta, Mary-Claire Wolfe, Jashaun Powell, and Andrew Tuck. I would like to say thank you for five years of your absolute best!”
