Freeman would down the Fillies in the opening round of the 2014 Class C-2 State Volleyball Championships back on Nov. 13, upending the Fillies in four sets before going on to defeat Crofton in four sets to win the Class C-2 State Championship. Sutton and Freeman would then square off six weeks later, this time on the basketball court. Paced by a 33-22 second half run, Freeman took a 15-14 halftime lead and expanded it to 12 points when the final buzzer sounded, beating the Fillies 48-36 in the finals of the Freeman Holiday Tournament on the Falcons’ home court in Adams.
