“We accomplished a lot in a short amount of time with a winning record of 9-1. This is the first team in Southeastern school history to win a Blount County Championship. I’ve always appreciated the way these guys played hard and played with a lot of confidence. They were a tough team to beat.

“We were all devastated by the decision to shut school sports down. I felt sorry for the seniors. They had expectations to make a run in the playoffs. These seniors wanted to end the season on their terms, but they won’t get to finish. It’s extremely frustrating.”
