  • Lady Tigers calm Lady Waves for...

    The Midway Lady Green Waves and the Meigs County Lady Tigers met for the fifth time this season in the Region 2A championship in Decatur Wednesday evening.

    Meigs County would win the title with a 2-0 win over Midway in a tight game from start to finish. Meigs County did not out hit, out pitch or out play Midway like they did in the two previous games in the district tourney which they won 9-0 and 7-0. This time Midway was snake bit by two throwing errors that allowed both Lady Tiger runs to score.

    Four  Roane County schools were recognized with sportsmanship awards.

    "Seven years ago, the Roane County School System began recognizing middle and high school athletic programs within our county that completed an entire athletic year with zero reports of unsportsmanlike conduct.  

    “We made the decision to try to present these schools with a monetary award to show appreciation for their emphasis on sportsmanship throughout the school year," said Tony Clower, middle school supervisor for Roane County Schools.

    However with the good news comes some not so good news. Midway will play District 3A rival and this year’s champion, Meigs County, for the fifth time this year Wednesday in Decatur.
