Warriorettes hold on late to take down Rhea County

Posted on January 26, 2017 5:05 am by Andy Southard

On Tuesday night, the Warriorettes took on the visiting Rhea County Lady Eagles inside Roy Sewell Gymnasium.

So this matchup had a little bit of bragging right on the line.

In the game, the Warriorettes built … Read More
