Volleyball: Lady Jr. Cyclones fall to Unicoi in home finale

By Curtis Carden


The Lady Jr. Blue Devils were quick to play spoiler for T.A. Dugger on Thursday night.

TAD hosted its eighth-grade appreciation night at Large Gym, but the Unicoi County Middle netters were able to record the two-set victory (25-11, 25-16) in front of a packed house in Elizabethton.

“They played a tough team,” TAD head coach Angie Barker said of her players. “They are a well-coached team with experience of girls playing travel-ball teams. We just had a few deficits we couldn’t overcome but I was proud of the way our girls fought and played.”
