The Lady Knights Softball team received their state championship rings at Macon East Academy’s annual Night with the Knights back to school event.  This is the 5th consecutive state title for the Lady Knights under the leadership of coach and MEA headmaster Glynn Lott.  The team lost only 2 seniors in the class of 2016, and are excited about another bid for the championship this spring.  Senior Paxton Searle, who plans to walk on with the Troy Trojans program, was in attendance, while Jesi Garrett was unable be there to receive her 10th state title ring (5 additional for volleyball).  Jesi is currently attending the College of Coastal Georgia where she is on the volleyball and softball teams.  Many of the Lady Knights spent the off season traveling with their summer teams and training for the spring of 2017.
