State Track Meet
Parkview's Track Teams took a 5th place (Men) and a 14th place (Women) overall finish in Rome this past Saturday. Please congratulate the following athletes on great finishes to their seasons:
Brian Hauch: STATE CHAMPION & NEW 7A RECORD HOLDER - Pole Vault
Parkview Ladies finish 14th overall
Our ladies took a small contigency to Rome last weekend and of the four we had competing, they fought hard and were able to finish tied for 14th overall.
Junior Jordan Pringle (who dealt with an injury-plagued season), was able to score and medal for us in the ladies Triple Jump.
Junior Kyla Turner (multi-sport athlete--softball), finished 10th overall in the discus after a huge breakthrough season.
Junior Skye Gross (also who overcame an injury-plagued campaign) leapt her way to a State Championship in the Long Jump with a jump of 18-11.
Senior Leah Disher (captain & Clemson-signee--also dealing with a nagging injury since her freshmen campaign) closed out her senior season finishing fourth overall in the 800m with 2nd best ever time of 2:15.02.
We are excited about the 2020 season already with so many ladies returning off of a tremendous region team and others who will continue to improve/progress.
Parkview Men finish 5th overall
Although we fell short of our goal of repeating as team state champions, this effort at the state meet was nothing short of incredible in most of our events we qualified in.
Junior Oscar Balog finished 14th overall in the discus (his second trip to state), and sophomore Cody Brown (also overcoming a couple of injuries from earlier in the spring) was able to hit a monster throw of 166-1 in the discus and finish 3rd overall. Cody's throw puts him #3 in Parkview history in the discus, and we expect HUGE things from him in his final two seasons with us.
Senior Charles Jordan (captain) capped off another great season finishing 4th overall in the shot put, eclipsing 50'+ in a pouring rain.
Junior Malik Thompson lost the triple jump on the final jump of the day by 1", but after two seasons of being #2 at state and qualifying as a freshman, he will return very hungry as a senior next year.
Junior distance runner, Tristan Autry, finished an incredible season finishing 5th in the 3200m and 8th in the 1600m, earning medals and valuable points in both for his team.
Senior Brian Hauch, GA Tech signee and pole vaulter, not only won the pole vault state championship, but his vault of 16-6.5" won by over a foot and set a new 7A state record as well as #6 performance all-time in GEORGIA history. He narrowly missed clearing 16-9.25". His goal is to break the Georgia all-time record by the time he concludes his senior season at New Balance Outdoor Nationals in a month in Greensboro, NC.
Our relays competed in the 4x1 and 4x4, but having to rely on alternates for a couple of reasons kept us from performing as well as we have in the past. We are still very proud of our 4x1 for finishing 16th overall and our 4x4 for finishing 15th overall. On these relays, we return Ronnie Hamrick (sophomore), Eric Pullum, Jr. (freshman), William Mitchell, III (sophomore), Leon Christian (sophomore), and Tamir Wade (junior).
Our guys LED THE MEET THROUGH 11 events with only five kids scoring--we led until the last day when the 110m hurdles ran.
Congratulate these kids--they trained and competed their hearts out for the program.
2020 is going to be another strong year for us. We have a few who have qualified for New Balance Nationals as well as the Meet of Champions this coming weekend at Marietta.
Thank you for your support this year.

TSA Wins State Championship
Parkview Technology Student Association (TSA) has won it's 5th State Championship at the 2019 GA TSA State Championship in Athens, GA. Accumulating 228 points, Parkview brought home the 1st place outstanding chapter with 5 first place trophies, 7 second place trophies, 6 third place trophies and, additionally 15 top ten placements. Mrs. Calvert received the Tommy Pitchford Inspirational Teacher Award and has completed her three year term on the GA TSA Board of Directors. The following are the ranking of the competitive events and members.
This Saturday, the PHS Math Team, represented by Jiwon Chang, Toby Nguyen, Boyu Zhou and Lawrence Zhou placed 2nd at the GSMST Math Tournament. Lawrence's individual score tied for first place, but he ended third overall after the tie-breakers were analyzed.
The Parkview Rifle team has received little fan fare over the last 5 months. However, last night they reached an important milestone by scoring a hard fought victory against Riverside Military Academy. With the win, the rifle team advances in the state playoffs. I would like to give a special shout out to Junior Annaliese Mayo and Freshman Madison Castleberry. Anna is currently the number 1 ranked shooter in the area and will advance to the state championships as an individual. Madison scored a perfect 100 in the prone position firing; firing 10 consecutive shots all in the bullseye. This is an amazing feat in and of itself but even more astounding when you consider she is only a freshman and this is her first year shooting competitively. I ask that if you have or know these two students, you congratulate them and the team for their accomplishments.
Next weekend we compete against the 5 best teams in the area at Lumpkin High School to determine who advances to the state sectionals.
Lieutenant Colonel Sean Wilson, USMC (Ret)
