Two lopsided wins couldn’t prevent the Lady Cyclones from dropping one spot in the Class AA poll this week. Elizabethton fell to No. 3 despite knocking off Happy Valley and Johnson County in convincing fashion.
Some might argue that league play has hurt ‘Betsy in recent weeks. The Three Rivers Conference is down, with Sullivan East (21-5) being the only other squad that hasn’t lost 10 games or more.
That’s sour grapes when you look at Grainger County and its cupcake schedule. The Grizzlies are good, but wins over Cherokee, West Greene and Claiborne County didn’t tickle many fancies either.
