The club was founded in 2017 by Michael Sinco and Lindsay REsnick. In our first year, we had over 60 runners compete at 5 different races. Impressively, only one of our runners came into the season with running experience. our first attempt at the Georgia State Championships saw our teams finish 14th on the girls side and the boys finished 21st.
In 2018, our team increased to over 90 members. With more experience under our belts, we were able to win our first races as a club at the Middle school showdown and Wesleyan invitational. We finished off the year with our first team victory at state in the JV Girls race. Meanwhile, our varsity girls team improved their state finish to 5th, while our varsity boys came in 10th. The combined total of all four of our state teams allowed us a 3rd place finish in the state grand championships.
In 2019, our team exploded to over 120 members. our varsity team finished in the top 3 in every race that they competed in which included wins at the cherokee county classic, big Peach Mustang stampede, and winder-barrow Invitational. Our girls JV defended their state title winning their race, while the girls varsity improved to runner-up and the boys varsity took 3rd. In combination with the JV Boys runner up finish at state, our team took home our first ever state grand championship. We were not done yet as we then took a team to the Foot Locker regionals where we finished in 6th place in the team competition.
Last year, covid limited our team size, but not our team's potential. Leading up to State, our varsity placed as one of the top two middle schools in every race in which they competed including wins at Cherokee County Classic, etowah river rumble and winning both titles at the first ever fulton county middle school championships. Championship season got even better as the team headed to state where they won 3 of 4 races (JV Boys, JV Girls, Var Boys) on their way to defending their state grand championship.
As we head into our fifth campaign, not only do we look to defend our state titles but to become more competitive at the regional competitions.

"I am writing this with lots of love and gratitude for all of the long hours, support and devotion of Coach Michael Sinco and Coach Lindsay Resnick. Coach Sinco presents tremendous dedication and a quiet, strong leadership for this team. His dedication goes far beyond coaching; he is also an incredible mentor for the children on and off the course. Coach Resnick is the heart and soul of the team. Her steadfast commitment to the children and their wellbeing is heartwarming. She can always be counted on to be there when you or your child need her, whether it be for administrative purposes or for personal reasons. A team of extraordinary, young students and athletes have developed and maintained a positive attitude, a high level of self motivation and learned how to set high/ realistic goals because of the leadership of these two remarkable coaches. What a foundation they are creating; preparing these kids to be great citizens in High School and adulthood. The LeFevre Family will be forever grateful” - Aimee
