  • Harriman extends winning streak...

    The Harriman Blue Devils defeated Farragut Admirals 74-55 in Knoxville Tuesday.
    The Blue Devils are starting to pick up some momentum after an 0-2 start. Harriman had seven varsity football players on the team, and it sometimes takes a few weeks to get into basketball shape after games into the season.
    Harriman was playing a much larger Farragut team, as they compete in Class 3A compared to the Blue Devils playing in Class A.
    This didn't stop them from controlling the game from the top.
