CECIL - In what could be a preview of the AISA Class AA championship series, Autauga and Macon East met in the semifinals of the Macon East Academy Tournament on Saturday.

With bigger stakes two months away, both coaches opted to pitch down in their rotations and not give away any trade secrets. Macon East, for example, boasts a lineup that has stolen nearly 100 bases this season, but only one player swiped a base.

It’s always been a traditional powerhouse in the Alabama Independent School Association, but there’s nothing better than an infusion of heavyweight talent.

The Tuscaloosa Academy girls basketball team would have been considered a contender for the AISA Class AAA title regardless of whether Kelsey Curry and Grace Pelphrey were on the team. With those two, however, the Knights are unbeaten in this state this season.
