Two Lamar County Trojan runners traveled to Charlotte, N.C., to take part in the Foot Locker South Regional Championships. Sydney Tenney leaves Lamar County as the most decorated distance runner in school history while Frank Spafford will return next year as the Trojans’ top runner.
Runners from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands gathered at McAlpine Park to run the most competitive race the South has to offer.
Frank Spafford, a sophomore, ran first in the sophomore boy’s race in a field of 280 runners. Spafford ran his best race of the season by nearly 40 seconds. He finished in 127th place in a time of 18:27.
Senior Sydney Tenney, running in her third Foot Locker South Regional, ended her career by shattering her own personal and school record of 20:02 (set in Charlotte, in 2012). For the second time in her career, Tenney garnered All-South Region honors (2012) by completing the course in a blazing 19:49, making her a Georgia Elite for the third time in her career. She missed National Elite status by a mere four seconds for 29th place in the senior girl’s race.
Tenney, Spafford, and the rest of the cross country Trojans will be honored with a banquet at the high school Thursday, Dec. 18.
The Lamar County Trojans were outscored 34-0 in the second half and lost 48-20 Friday to the GAC Spartans. They finish 8-3-1.
Coach Jamie Abrams' Trojans hung tough in the first half and actually led at intermission against the top ranked team in Class AA. They fell behind in the second half, however, and, when forced to pass to stay alive, threw what seemed to be more interceptions than completions.
The Trojan showing in the first half was strong enough that Spartan head coach Tim Hardy felt it necessary to leave his starters in in order to tack on one last touchdown with under a minute left and the game long since decided. That was judged a classless move by all on the LC sidelines.

The #6 Lamar County Trojans faltered late and lost 36-21 to Macon County Friday night in Montezuma. MaCo is the Region 4AA champ. LC is runner up.
The game turned halfway through the final quarter when LC gave up a long kick return and subsequent TD. The Trojans fumbled the ensuing kickoff, setting themselves up for the kill. Dog star Roquan Smith was glad to oblige as he owned the last six minutes of the contest.
Lamar will host Swainsboro (5-5) in the first round of the playoffs and MaCo will host Dublin 6-4.
Barring a huge upset, the second round will see match ups with powerhouses GAC or Lovett for both Lamar and MaCo.
