People know the Lady Falcons and I am so proud of the hard work each student and coach put forth this season! Congratulations on a job well done!”

Coached by Ms. Wagstaff, an eighth grade math teacher at Forsyth, the team also had an opportunity to attend the Winston-Salem State University Lady Rams vs. Fayetteville State University Lady Broncos collegiate basketball game in January.
“A player’s grandmother, Boss Lady Anita Dean, an on-air gospel radio personality at 1340 AM The Light prayed for us on-air and gave Forsyth Academy shout outs,” said Wagstaff. “This has been a tremendous journey and story.
