Coach Christy Scoggins praised her team, “These students did so well and we are so proud of first year participant, Noel Smith, and her state championship for piano. She was amazing. We are disappointed we didn’t win the overall state title for the fourth year in a row but understand that it is not always about winning and losing. It’s about learning, growing, and representing Christ.”

This year’s region event was held at Brewton-Parker College and the State Championship was held at Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, GA.
