BRISTOL, Va. — Meeting on a neutral court was an even easier victory for Cloudland’s basketball team.
The Lady Highlanders had no trouble disposing of Volunteer 74-55 on Thursday evening in the Borderline Classic quarterfinals at the Bearcat Den. Last week, in Roan Mountain, Cloudland handed the Falcons their first loss of the season.
“Which we knew it was going to be tough,” Cloudland coach Matt Birchfield said. “They kind of scared us a little bit. They’ve got two great players, and we talked about both of them.
“But I felt like our kids really come out mentally ready. We got some buckets in transition.”
