GRAY--The Lady Red had Tennessee High on the hook several times, but could never reel in the Lady Vikings in their Region 1-AAA semi-final clash Monday night at Daniel Boone High School.

As a result, the District 1-AAA runner-ups escaped with a 47-42 victory that sends Tennessee High [26-5] into Wednesday’s championship game against District 1-AAA champion Science Hill for a fourth time this season.  Science Hill fought off Morristown West in the nightcap, 54-38.

Cocke County never led in the game but whittled the margin to a single point once each in the second and third quarters, missed two free throws that would have forged a tie with 3:01 left in the contest and saw a pair of potential game-tying three-point attempts rim out in the final fifteen seconds.

“We missed some opportunities throughout the game – missed some free throws and some short shots,” lamented Cocke County head coach Jeremy Byrd.
