Cyclones head to East for league opener

The skies are darkening over Sullivan East High School as the Cyclones prepare to touch down tonight for their first Three Rivers Conference game of the year.

“Our first goal as we start the year is to win the conference,” said Elizabethton football head coach Shawn Witten. “Tonight is the first conference game and we want to get off to a good start.”

With the Cyclones (1-1) off a 56-34 loss to Science Hill High School, Witten said that the team as whole needs to focus at performing better at every spot on the field.
