Forsyth County landed six players on the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association All-State basketball teams, which were released this week.

Denmark led the way with three selections on the Class 4A list, including senior Adonnis Tolbert, junior Sutton Smith and sophomore Robert Cowherd. 

Tolbert, who recently committed to Augusta University, averaged 12.4 points, 9.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game for the Danes. 

Smith averaged 14.3 points per game at point guard, adding 6.3 assists and 2.1 steals per game.

Cowherd led the Danes with 20.3 points per game, chipping in 6.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals per game. 

The Danes (25-6) captured a Region 7-4A championship this season before falling in the Final Four, 64-43, to Woodward Academy.

South Forsyth junior Devin McGlockton was named to the Class 7A team after averaging 18 points, eight rebounds and two blocks per game for the War Eagles. McGlockton shot 57 percent from the field this season and 70 percent from the free-throw line. 

South Forsyth (18-12) won its first home playoff game in the history of its boys basketball program when the War Eagles beat Parkview 62-53. South Forsyth fell to McEachern in the second round of the playoffs, 59-53.

North Forsyth’s dynamic duo of Ansley Allen and Caroline Martin each earned a spot on the Class 7A girls team.

Martin led the Raiders with 15 points per game this season. She also averaged three rebounds per game and shot over 48 percent from the field. 

Allen averaged 11.9 points per game, while shooting 75 percent from the free-throw line. She also averaged 4.9 rebounds and 2.9 steals per game for the Raiders. 

North Forsyth (27-3) ended its season in the Elite Eight with a 53-47 loss to Cherokee. The Raiders peeled off a 20-game winning streak during the 2019-20 season.

North Forsyth’s senior class finished its career with a program-best 102 victories.
