The boys team came into the meet with an 8th place ranking.  Senior captain Eric Lawson told the boys that they were better than what the rankings said and the boys proved it today.  Junior Tyler Tesch led the team with a personal best time of 17:02 and an 18th place finish.  This was Tyler's first trip to State meet.  Tyler made a statement today that he is a force to be reckoned with!  Junior Daniel Weekes also set a personal best time of 17:04 and a 20th place finish.  Daniel took over the lead for Mauldin halfway through the race to push the team ahead.  Senior Eric Lawson did not have his best race but still ran a better time than his last two trips to the SC state meet, placing 26th with a 17:11. Junior Kris Lacer placed 53rd overall with a 17:33.  Kris will be joining Daniel, Tyler and Eric on the track team this year.  Kris has the potential to be one of Mauldin's best runners yet!  7th grader Sawyer Willingham was 77th overall with a 17:54 in his first of many trips to the SC state meet.  Junior Graham Harris placed 81st  with a 17:56 and Junior Teddy Buckner placed 90th with an 18:06.  Way to go MAVS, you made us all proud today!!
