This week’s Unit of the Week could have been called the fighter of the week award.
For their performance on the field after difficult circumstances, Cloudland and Unaka have been named the Applebee’s of Elizabethton Unit of the Week.
Both teams traveled to Knoxville to open region play on Friday night. The teams encountered a massive traffic snarl that delayed the arrival to their respective venues by hours instead of minutes. To make matters worse, it was a 90+ degree day on the school buses, that made the temperatures rise inside the buses.
However, the teams didn’t let that bother them. Both Cloudland and Unaka went to work, and took care of business as both teams picked up an important conference win. It was a perfect ending to a less than stellar trip to Knoxville.
The teams join the Hampton defense and the Cloudland offense as honorees for our Unit of the Week award.
