Edgewood Wins Boy’s Basketball State Title

Edgewood Wildcats win the AISA Class AA Boy's State Title Game Over Edgewood

MONTGOMERY, AL — Despite a tight game at half, a 21 to 8 scoring margin in the third quarter led the Edgewood Wildcats to a state title over Macon East, the second basketball title in school history. Montgomery Catholic transfer Reggie Gee led the Wildcats with 17 points as they beat the Knights 59-39. Gee was named the tournament MVP for class AA. “I’ve never gotten a ring before,” said Gee. “Honestly I’m just happy. Just happy.” Monday marked Edgewood’s first basketball title since 2001. It is also Chris George’s first season as head basketball coach, but is already making strides within the Wildcat winning culture. “I’m excited to start building,” said George. “Hopefully we can do what Coach Carr does on the football field, and do it on the basketball coach as well.” Gee had help in the championship game, as David Poole and Nathan Rourke added twelve points a piece. “It means more than football or baseball because it is only our second one,” said Rourke. “It’s great to be a part of this one.”
