While it wasn’t the ending East Gadsden and Coach Dimitric Salters wanted, the Jaguars’ future looked bright. East Gadsden’s bid for a first state title in boys’ basketball was stopped in the FHSAA Class 4A semifinals. The Jaguars couldn’t overcome a slow start and tumbled to Lakeland Kathleen 60-48 at the Lakeland Civic Center. Sam McLaurin led the East Gadsden effort with 15 points and 12 rebounds.
