HV bows to Unicoi; Lady Longhorns eliminated


Happy Valley was hoping to nip Unicoi County in the bud in the District 1-AA softball tournament, but unfortunately its run total equaled the number of bullets in Barney Fife’s pistol.
“One” was not enough to knock off the Lady Blue Devils, who prevailed 6-1 on Friday night at Elizabethton High School.
Unicoi (30-5) were pushed to the max by the young Lady Warriors, who started three freshmen and three sophomores. It was 2-0 through five.

The Lady Longhorns banged out 10 hits, but it wasn’t enough to keep them from being eliminated. Sullivan East scored 10 times in the first two frames en route to its 12-4 win.
“We came out ready to play and hit the ball well,” said Sullivan East head coach Tommy Forrester. “I thought we totally dominated the game.”
