Delta Sigma Theta president Donesha Wilson, left, presents Forrest City basketball coach Dwight Lofton, right, with an award recognizing the Mustang basketball team’s state championship season. Lofton’s Mustangs finished 24-4 overall and won the Class 5A state championship, Forrest City’s first-ever basketball state title. Joining Wilson and Lofton are seniors Trey Thompson, standing left, Terion Smith and Dwain Whitfield, all members of the school’s Distinguished Gentlemen program, which requires its members to have a 2.5 GPA or better. All three were starters for Lofton’s Mustangs this past season. Thompson was named the Class 5A state tournament MVP and will play college basketball for the Arkansas Razorbacks. Smith, middle, and Whitfield are still unsigned. Photo by Fred Conley.
