A season with a team record number of wins, the Floyd County High School’s Lady Buffaloes’ stampede towards a state championship stopped at the Class C2 semi-finals Tuesday night at Glenvar High with a 3-1 defeat by the Highlanders, the only squad to beat the Buffs this season.
But the Lady Buffs made the final four, won 23 games, and brought astounding enthusiasm and support to a school coming off a pandemic year. They did it with style, grace and athletic prowess.
The ladies beat the Highlanders 3-2 at home during the regular season, but lost the second season game, then the regional final and Tuesday’s state semi-final as the only team to beat the Ladies this season. More photos and details in Thursday’s Floyd Press.
