Georgia Blazers Storm the Lakeshore Invitational, Qualify for Junior Nationals

Last Friday, three members of our own Georgia Blazers competed at the Lakeshore Invitational in Vestavia Hills, Alabama. Veteran athlete Bryan Powell was joined by rookies Colin Lancaster and Josh Joines, and all three turned in outstanding performances and qualified for Junior Nationals in both track and field events. Junior Nationals will take place July 16-23 in Saginaw, Michigan, and the Blazers will spend the next five weeks getting themselves into peak condition for their biggest meet of the year. Congrats to the whole team!
