Following up on back-to-back state titles is tough to do, and add to that a move to the AAA division, the Varsity Boys finished their season 12-16. Playing the toughest schedule in the AISA , the Knights lost 6 games to out-of-state teams and 5 games by 5 points or less. In a rebuilding year for the program, the team showed a lot of growth throughout the season, but ended their run in the first round of playoffs.
Making yet another appearance in the Elite 8, the Varsity Girls fell to Ft. Dale 56-40. Also moving up to AAA competition, the Lady Knights had an overall 13-10 season. Team leader, Madisyn Kennedy ended her season with 24 points in the final game. The team loses just two starters for next year.
Madisyn Kennedy and Kerion Taylor, who led their teams in scoring this season, represented Macon East in the AISA senior All-Star games on February 22. The East girls team defeated the West 68-65, and the East boys fell to the West 78-83. Congratulations to Madisyn and Kerion on their selection as All-Stars! Macon East cheerleaders, Annslie Gourlay and Sarah Krasnowiecki also participated as All-Stars.
