The Cougars finished the season with 23 wins and made it to the third round of the state playoffs.

East Coweta placed six players on the first team All-Region: Hayden Blair, John Monnin, Nico Senese, Ben Hollenbeck, Michael Son and Josh Sibley. The Indians added Evan Doss, Bryce Alewine and Jacob Rossi to the second team.
