With two teams making it to the state tournament, the 2013 baseball/softball season was a good one for Roane County.


That success was rewarded recently as eight players from Roane County were named to various all-state teams.
Rockwood’s Tavin Napier and Kingston’s Morgan Snow had the most success as both were named to two all-state teams.
Napier hit .581 on the season with 13 doubles, 7 triples, 6 home runs, 58 RBIs and 46 runs scored on the season. He was named to the Tennessee Baseball Report All-State Team and the Tennessee Sports Writers Association (TSWA) Class A All-State Team.
Snow hit .553 on the season with 14 doubles, 8 home runs and 33 RBIs. She was named to the Tennessee Softball Coaches All-State Team and the TSWA Class AA All-State Team.
Snow and Napier each had a teammate selected to the TSWA all-state teams.
Jared Breazeale was selected from Rockwood. Breazeale hit .374 with 12 doubles, 50 RBIs and 44 runs scored while posting a 9-2 record on the mound with 95 Ks in 68.2 innings pitched.
Spurgeon hit .495 on the season with 28 RBIs and 42 runs scored.
Oliver Springs finished fourth in the state and had four players named TSWA All-State.
Courtney Jones led the quartet of Lady Bobcats as she batted .485 on the season with 18 doubles, 37 RBIs and 36 runs scored. She also posted a 29-6 record with 250 Ks in 187 innings pitched.
Emily Griffith (.546, 11 2Bs, 43 runs), Rachel Griffith (.550, 35 RBIs, 31 runs) and Macy Martin (.495, 17 2Bs, 35 RBIs were also named all-state from Oliver Springs.
