Jack Everest, a local Woodstock youth athlete, has had a wildly successful month. Everest, age 8, placed first in the USA Track & Field Regional Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships which took place in Myrtle Beach, SC this past weekend, on November 19, 2011. The week before, Jack also earned the #1 spot in the State Championships which was in Peachtree City on November 12, 2001. The Regional Championship included Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, & Washington DC. Everest won in the 2000 Meter Run CC Sub-Bantam Boys event which encompasses runners born no earlier than 2003.
Jack is not only an accomplished runner–this busy 8 year old does several youth triathlons a year, including the IronKids Alpharetta Triathlon which is the largest youth triathlon in the United States.
