Garrett Lawson became the first runner in the history of the Camden High School cross country program to earn All-State honors as he helped lead the Bulldogs to a ninth place finish in Saturday’s South Carolina High School League’s AAA State Championship Meet held at the Sandhills Research Center in Columbia. Before the boys’ race, the Lady Bulldogs finished 19th in the state in class AAA. Lawson, a senior, posted a team-best time of 17:13, which was good for 11th place overall which earned him All-State accolades. Only the top 15 runners from each championship meet qualified for All-State honors.
