Senior athletes honored at SGA
The Southwest Georgia Academy Booster Club honored their senior athletes in basketball and cheerleading Feb. 7 at their last home game. These students were recognized between the games. They were accompanied by their parents and faced the fans as Leslie Godwin, counselor, read the accomplishments of each student and introduced their parents. Each athlete had a rose to present to their mother in appreciation.
The first to be recognized were senior girls who played basketball: Annie Bridges, daughter of Kathy and John Bridges of Brinson, who was also recognized for varsity cheerleading; Jasmine Dowdy, daughter of Stacy and Chris Dowdy of Colquitt; Erin Ragan, daughter of Stacie and Randy Ragan of Edison; and Ashlyn Layne Wilkerson, daughter of Tiffany and Mark Wilkerson of Morgan.
The two senior boys who play basketball were recognized next. They were: Clayton Avera, son of Dusty Avera of Morgan; and Mason Stuart, son of Rhonda and Chane Rathel of Donalsonville, and Max Stuart of Jakin.
The last group recognized were cheerleaders: Ellen Bryan, daughter of Lacey Callen and the late Jaret Mark Bryan of Colquitt; Kinsley Cochran, daughter of Susan and Scott Cochran of Arlington; and Emma Giles, daughter of Stacie and Dan Giles of Fort Gaines.
