East Coweta sophomore Kyle Harkabus was one of 49 athletes in the state that were named to the All-Metro Track & Field Team after winning state titles in the 800 and 1,600.

The honors keep pouring in for East Coweta High School sophomore Kyle Harkabus.

Harkabus was named to the 2018 Powerade All-Metro Track and Field Team by the Atlanta Track Club after winning both the 1600 and 800 during the Class 7-A meet at Berry College in Rome last weekend.

He was one of 49 track and field athletes honored by the Atlanta Track Club.

Harkabus ran the 1600 in 4:13.4 and the 800 in 1:54 en route to his wins.

Paced by Harkabus’ two victories, East Coweta scored 44 ½ points in the boys’ team standings and finished fourth.

“The metro Atlanta area is home to some of the best scholastic track and field athletes in the United States,” said Rich Kenah, Atlanta Track Club’s Executive Director. “We are proud to recognize their accomplishments and celebrate their successful season.”
