A restructured Three Rivers Conference will see perennial volleyball powerhouse Sullivan South added to the mix in 2013. Elizabethton’s Lady Cyclones are apprehensive, but excited to take on the challenge.
The Lady Rebels defeated Knox Bearden and Columbia in the Class AAA State Tournament at MTSU before falling to Brentwood last season — and have moved down in classification for 2013.
“South is always a volleyball powerhouse,” said Lady Cyclones head coach Leslee Bradley. “But I think it only makes everyone in the conference and the conference as a whole stronger. It is possible for two teams to come out of a district and end up at the state tournament.”
