Happy Valley had “ducks on the pond” on several occasions, but couldn’t drive them in against Sullivan East on Tuesday. This allowed the Lady Patriots to “swim” away with a 3-1 victory in the semifinals of the losers’ bracket of the District 1-AA softball tournament played at Elizabethton High School.
Some baserunning mistakes and not being able to get down some sac bunts in key situations could have left head coach Mike Dorsey in a “fowl” mood. But this year’s sad “swan” song might be a happy one next season as all nine starters return.
