Poteet cited that playing Sullivan South, Sullivan North, Sullivan East and Elizabethton have been tall orders, so much so that she made a bold statement on how good this conference is.

“Those four volleyball teams are elite teams and are extremely tough, and it has been a struggle for us,” Poteet said. “There is a lot of good volleyball in this conference. I feel we have the toughest conference in the state.”
