A week after being part of a county championship team in Harlan County, three members of the Rosspoint fifth- and sixth-grade squad were part of another winning team on the AAU circuit. Reagan Clem, Jaycee Simpson and Jaylee Cochran are members of the KBE Ballers, a team based in London that is led by former Jackson County standout Mitchell Madden.
The team won the Tennessee Premier Border Wars Tournament on Saturday in Bristol, defeating the Kingsport Lady Warriors 20-4, SWARM Elite 23-10 and the Kingsport Lady Warriors 16-10 in the championship game.
