For the Cardinals against CCE, “we actually got a hold of the lead, and slowed the game down,” said Landrum head coach Lyn Smith. “We were being very cautious not to surrender the lead, as we ran out the clock.”

Smith added, “Blacksburg lost Friday (February 2), so if we win Tuesday vs. GMC, we win the conference (region).”

Landrum’s regular season ends Thursday, February 8, at Blacksburg.
