ERWIN — The Three Rivers Conference volleyball jamboree on Tuesday night wasn’t an enjoyable experience for either Elizabethton or Johnson County at The Den.
But it is preseason, and each team has its heads held high with time to work out the kinks before opening night.
Elizabethton was defeated by Sullivan East 25-16, Sullivan South 25-10 and Unicoi County in the event’s finale 25-18.
“South and East are perennial powerhouses, and then you have to play Unicoi on their home court,” said Leslee Bradley, coach of the Lady Cyclones. “They always protect their home court really well, so it was a tough lineup. It was good for us to see the things that we still need to work on.”
