The boys are off to a great start finishing Runner up at the Chic-Fil-A Invitational. The meet fielded top schools from all over the state. The bulldogs finished second out of 21 schools only to 6 AAAAAA powerhouse Westlake. This accomplishment was anchored by the defeat of Southwest Dekalb in the sprint medley. This race included Marquis Williams, Kirkland Varnado, Marquette Simmons and Andrew Nsuk. The bulldogs also won the 4x400 with Marquette Simmons, Andrew Nsuk, Joshua Simmons and Johnathon Ross. Mount Zion is currently ranked first in the state in both of these relays. The bulldogs are looking to make a run at the state title in the 5AAAAA this year. The bulldogs are led by Marquette Simmonds and Andrew Nsuk. Both are top senior prospects coming out this year. They have yet to commit to a school. More information to follow soon. Other returners expcecting break out years Keon Hobbs, Marquis Williams, Kirklin Varnado, Jeremiah Barber, Renard Snell, Joshua Simmonds, Randy Johnicon and Johnathan Ross. As good as the bulldogs were last year they are even better this year with a large group of new comers ready to take off. Leading the way for the newcomers is middle distance star Justin Taybron.
