Milton High School was well represented at the GHSA State Track & Field Meets held the previous two weekends.

At the boy's state meet contested in Jefferson, GA, Milton had two athletes competing. In the 800 meter run, senior Fraser Reade ran 1:56.92 to eventually place 8th in the AAAAA competition. That time was a new Milton school record, the old record was 1:59.64 from 1967! Also competing for the Eagles was junior Peter Flaaen. Peter was in two events and placed 12th in the high jump and 15th in the long jump.

At the girl's state meet, contested in Albany, GA, the Lady Eagles had two competitors. Sophomore Samantha Becker in the Pole Vault and junior Chelsea Weiermiller in the 3200 meter run. Samantha placed 8th in the pole vault competition and Chelsea had a breakthrough race, passing 3 runners on the last lap to finish in 6th place, running a 11:39.98, breaking the school record in the process.
