FPD gained ground, albeit not much, on Athens Christian in the GHSA boys track and field meet Friday, while Fitzgerald gave up a little ground.
The day’s schedule was mostly preliminaries for running events, except for the 1,600 meters (completed Thursday) and 3,200 (finished Friday).
The second-place Vikings picked up a point in the Class A private school race with Will Martin’s eighth-place finish in the 3,200. First-place Athens Christian didn’t have a runner in the event.
On the other hand, third-place Athens Academy crept closer to FPD with a fifth-place finish in the event, closing the gap from 10 to seven points between the two.
Fitzgerald didn’t have a runner in the 3,200, but third-place Greater Atlanta Christian got eight points to get past Thomasville and take over second, seven points behind the Purple Hurricane. Bleckley County moved into third with Austin Cook’s fourth-place finish
