In the words of Elvis, “there was peace in the valley” for Warrior fans after Thursday’s win over Sullivan East in the first round of the District 1-AA softball tournament at Elizabethton High School.
The Lady Patriots experienced “Heartbreak Hotel” in their 7-5 loss to Happy Valley.
The Warriors (12-19) will face Unicoi County today at 6:30 p.m. in the winners’ bracket semifinals. East (18-19) plays Johnson County, which was upset by Sullivan North 7-6, at 5 p.m.
Happy Valley took to the field with three freshmen and three sophomores in the starting lineup. But the squad meshed and played well in their biggest game of the year.
