Six Gators
named All-State

    Four Bulloch Academy softball players, a cross country runner and a soccer player were named All-State in their respective sports for the 2006 Georgia Independent School Association fall-sports season.
    Student-athletes Kacie Lanier, Kaylee Lanier, Addie Reddick, Rachel Gilbert, William Spigener and John Manack received the league’s highest honors at the school’s Fall Sports Awards Ceremony on Nov. 28. Gator football player James Conner was named All-State Monday.
    Reddick, Gilbert and the Laniers, no relation, were named All-State in softball, Spigener was honored in soccer and Manack won his with a Top 10 finish in the Class AA state cross country meet.
    The softball foursome helped lead the Lady Gator squad to a history-making 24-6 season and a second-place finish in the Class AA tournament. Kacie Lanier, a senior, was the team’s second baseman while Kaylee Lanier, a sophomore, played shortstop. Addie Reddick, also a sophomore, played first base while Rachel Gilbert, an eighth grader, was the team’s center fielder.
    Spigener, a senior, was a defender on the Gator boys’ soccer team. Both Spigener and the softball players were voted All-State by a consensus of the Class AA coaches in their respective sports.  
    Manack, a freshman, won his All-State honor in late October by finishing ninth out of 110 runners in the Class AA state cross country meet in Macon. He ran a personal best 18:31 on the 3.1-mile course at the Georgia Children’s Home.
