RTCA Track At Bulloch
Robert Toombs Christian Academy competed in their second track meet of the season at Bulloch Academy on March 9. Both the Varsity Girls and Boys teams finished 3rd overall and had several personal best times, throws, or jumps. Head Coach Jacob Wilkinson had to say about the meet, 'We still don't have all of our guys and girls out on the track and field yet. However, we're still getting great times, jumps, and throws from our athletes. I'm looking forward to our meet at Brentwood next week. We will get to see what needs to be improved since Brentwood and Augusta Prep will both be there. We will meet these two teams in April at State, so it's good to go ahead and get practice in against them during the season.'
