2010 Gazette-Star all-county girls' track and field team
Girls' Runner of the Year
Charles H. Flowers
The senior was a huge part in the Jaguars' first outdoor state championship as she scored 30 of the team's 81 points at the state meet. Graham swept the 100-meter and 300-meter hurdles at the county and 4A South Region meets, and took third in the 100 and second in both hurdle events at the state championships. She leaves with an overall state record (13.92 seconds) in the girls' 100 hurdles and will continue her career at the University of Florida.
Girls' Field Athlete of the Year
Morgan completed a triple crown in the shot put, winning the county championship, 3A South Region and Class 3A state championship. Morgan's throw of 44 feet, 9 inches at the county championships was the best distance in the state this season. She will continue her career at Elon University (N.C.).
Girls' Coach of the Year
Charles H. Flowers
The Jaguars developed depth throughout the lineup under Rose, and that quality was on display at the state championship meet. Flowers got just one first-place finish, but generated points in sprinting, distance and field events on their way to the first outdoor championship in program history.
