Just two seniors depart from the Knoxville Girls Basketball Squad this season. Kassi Griggs and Katie Cunningham while not the focal points of the team, were very important according to Coach Jim Utiermarkt. Utiermarkt says while Griggs would have wanted more playing time, she never complained and often was encouraging other players at practice and during games. Cunningham came off the bench for the most part this season and Utiermarkt adds she was able to figure out her role on and off the court. Utiermarkt says both will be missed and thinks they will be successes after high school. Knoxville finished with an 8-14 record.
