  • Football in springtime

    Football fans pining for the Fall and start of a new football season, take heart.

    Like a bolt from out of the blue, the Knoxville Lightning is there for area fans to get their pigskin fix.

    The Lightning is a semi-pro football team that is based out of Knoxville and practices at Tommy Shumpert Park.

    There is so much more to the team, though.

    The team is not your average every day football team. They’re all women.

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets put together a complete team win Friday evening with a 5-2 win against the Stone Memorial Panthers at Legion Field.

    “This is probably the most complete game we’ve had,” Kingston Coach Bruce Robinette said. “We really cut down on mistakes and were aggressive and more fun to watch.”

  • Lady Tigers fast in win

    The Rockwood Lady Tigers softball team traveled to Oakdale on Thursday, and then played host to the Lady Eagles on Friday on the softball diamond, and both results turned out to be favorable for the Lady Tigers in both contests.

    The Tigers were able to cruise to the victory on Thursday as they picked up the 24-1 victory over Oakdale.

    Kara Garrett pitched in the game on Thursday for Rockwood and went the distance in the contest only giving up 3 hits.

  • Kingston dominates against Meigs...

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets faced Meigs in Tennis this past Thursday, winning both the girls and the boys matches 5-4 and 6-3 respectively.

  • Orange and White impressions

    It was gameday again on the Hill. As a sea of orange shirts cascaded down Peyton Manning Pass, I was reminded once again of just how special Neyland Stadium is, especially in beautiful weather.

    65,098 Vol faithful packed the lower bowl to watch Team 122 in the annual Orange & White Game. The attendence number is probably exaggerated, however it is still among the Top 5 for spring game attendance this year.

  • Green Wave washes out

    The Rockwood Tigers cinched the top spot in the district Tuesday night after sweeping Midway in a double-header at Midway.

    “I was really proud of the way our guys played today,” Rockwood Coach Jake Witter said. “We faced some quality arms from Midway.

    “They’re a quality team and these two wins today solidified us as the one seed in our half of the district in our division.

    The weather was not kind to the Lady Blue Devils as Monday night’s game with Oliver Springs was not completed due to muddy field conditions which lead to having to play two five inning games at the Lady Bobcats home field on Tuesday night and the previously undefeated in district play Harriman Lady Devils fell to a defensively sound Oliver Springs team by scores of 5-3 and 2-1.
