It took a couple of tie-breaking sixth runners, but both East Jackson cross country teams will travel to Carrollton Saturday for the state Class AA meet.
The boys can add another title to their trophy case, as the Eagles came away with the region 8-AA title Saturday at Riverside Military Academy.
Both East Jackson and North Oconee scored 39 points, with the tie broken by the sixth-place runner. East Jackson’s sixth runner, Cale Pirtle, placed 20th overall and North Oconee’s sixth runner came in 26th, which secured the title for East Jackson.
