Clarksville, TN – Unconquered, unblemished, flawless- these are all adjectives used to describe the Rossview Lady Hawks District 10-AAA conference record. The seven other teams in the conference have made 13 attempts to stop them … and failed.
The latest attempt was made by the Northeast Lady Eagles Thursday night at Rossview’s home court. The Rossview Lady Hawks defeated the Lady Eagles 3-0 (25-9, 25-12, 25-12).

Austin Peay vs. Eastern Illinois
