Eight team trophies and 60 state titles are all at stake this weekend at Boo Williams' Sportsplex in Hampton. It is finally that time again where the best athletes in the state will run, jump, vault, and throw for state titles and team trophies in the annual 5A and 6A State meets. 

Don't Let Them Fool You, You Need To Watch Out For These 6 Athletes! Feb 16, 2017

The awesome thing about the post-season is finally getting to see athletes show their true potential. It is common practice today to save athletes until the post-season and to solely focus on training after just one meet where the athlete hits the auto-standard. That combined with coaches hiding their athletes from the spotlight makes for a big coming out party each year at the State Championships.

King Edward III Leads Bethel Comeback Mar 5, 2017

Leading into the state 5A/6A finals on Friday morning, Milestat webmaster Nolan Jez initiated a conversation with former Bethel coach, and now meet official, Eddie Williams about the potential outcome of the 5A boys showdown.

Syaira Richardson Goes Four for Four to Lead Team WAR Mar 2, 2017

One of the most electrifying performances from last weekend’s 5A/6A state meet came from Nansemond River senior Syaira Richardson. The Ohio State-bound senior placed first in three of the 5A girls’ individual events, and one relay, setting a new state meet record in each one. Her performance paralleled that of another Ohio State track athlete who once won four gold medals while setting, or tying world records in each one – Jesse Owens in 1935.
