Lakewood girls basketball honors Mackenzie Forrest and “Papa Joe” Poisson
LAKEWOOD — Hustle and heart will set you apart.
Mackenzie Forrest lived by those words. And those words were true to the way that she performed on the basketball court.
At the conclusion of the 2015-16 girls basketball season, “Lil Mac’s” senior year, she had cemented her place in Lakewood basketball history. She finished as the school’s all-time leading scorer with 1,420 points.
She was poised to play at Regis University, just up the road from her home.
But her story came to a tragic end on March 13, 2016. Mac was killed in a car accident.
Wednesday night, her friends, family, teammates, teammate-to-be and many others gathered at Lakewood High School to honor her.
