Please congratulate our boys basketball team as they beat Chattahoochee yesterday in double overtime to win the regular season Region title and the #1 seed heading in to our Region tournament this week. The Knights finished 13-1 in region play and this is their first #1 seed going in to the tournament since 2009/10. The boys will open the Region tournament at home on Wednesday against Cambridge at 6pm. Capacity for indoor Fulton County events is limited to family and GHSA passholders,.
We also had some players with individual accolades from the Region. Seniors Logan Turner and Kyle Duncan were both 1st Team All Region selections and Senior KJ Spooney and Sophomore Mansir Williamson were both Honorable Mention All Region players.
Congratulate Coach Matt Barksdale on being name Region 7 Boys Coach of the Year. Matt is a selfless leader of this group that fosters a culture of love, family, and hardwork. He lives for these boys and does everything for them on and off the court. The hardwork and selfless attitude of the team comes right from their coach. I cannot think of a more deserving honor than to be recognized by his peers for everything he does. Congratulations Coach! Good luck in the Region Tournament.
