One of the girls he’s talking about never went to Avery High School. Like other kids from the southern tip of Avery county she went to Mitchell after middle school. Just like kids from the western side sometimes goes to Cloudland in TN, and some from the Northern side end up at Watauga. Has happened for yrs. Happens at Mitchell too. Every year there are always a few Mitchell kids in Mtn Heritage’s sports programs. Sometimes it’s just closer or more convenient for parents and sometimes it’s probably sports related. The other 2 girls were at Avery last year and transferred to Mitchell over the summer. Not sure their reasons.

Why did so many players leave Avery?
Because they all cared about their playing time as a freshman or sophomore more than learning from a group of girls that were already there. They forgot why all of them grew up playing travel ball in the Avery county system to begin with. That was to join forces and do something special that had never been done in Avery county history go to state. Sure the jv coach for avery was tough, but as a good former Avery player herself, she was setting those girls up for success. Just like mh's coach Shelton did this year. You have to buy into the system you grew up playing in, and those 3 girls did not. So that left Avery with no depth, and empty handed. Franklin lives at south end of avery county, she did not abandon her school and teammates. She earned her playing time as a freshman. It would have been no different for the other 3. So if they are ranked 2nd without those girls, and Mitchell is 10th with those girls. All they needed was depth, that's it. But that playing time will never replace what they could have gotten.

Well that’s a shame and I really hate to hear that cause those were 3 great girls and players that you just named. Well hopefully they can just be themselves and be the best they can be. We’ll be satisfied with that.
