The 2022 State Track Meet for classification AAA and AAAAAA will be held in Carrolton, Georgia on May 12-14. It will be at Grisham Stadium.
NHHS has reserved 13 rooms for Athletes, coaches, and parent chaperones at the Hampton Inn. This is very close to the stadium and near many restaurants. I hope more families will stay in the same hotel as the team this year. I advise reserving rooms early since there are not many hotels in Carrollton.

North Hall is sending 13 athletes to the State Track Meet this week in Albany, Georgia. Two of those Athletes were Sectional Champions. Junior Boy Pole Vaulter Simon Seid actually tied the North Hall school record this past Saturday at 15 ft. when he won the competition. Sophomore Jeremiah Telander won the High Jump competition by jumping 6 ft. 4 inches – just two inches shy of the school record.
Other Athletes who are peaking at the right time are Seniors Caylee Wagner and Andrew Jones and Freshman Abi Moore. All have excelled throughout the year doing various Distance events. Caylee and Andrew are doing the 1600m and 3200m races and vying for the top honors. Abi is in the 1600m and 800m which could have her racing on three days.
Clay Stover could compete in all three days as he does the Triple Jump and the 110 High Hurdles. Jarrett Latty is throwing his best records recently in the Discus.
The Girls 4 x 800m Relay Team is currently ranked First in the State and were Champs at the Sectionals Meet. The Team is: Elissa Oliver, Caylee Wagner, Abi Moore, and Makayla Jones. James Bennett, Bradley Hernandez, Ian Harris, and Elijah Jernigan are also there at State competing in the 4 x 800m Relay.
