  • Tigers outplay Bobcats for win

    The Rockwood Tigers opened the season and district play Friday with a 61-36 win against Oliver Springs at Oliver Springs.

    Although the Rockwood season start was stunted due to the extension of the football season, it was the Bobcats who looked like they were just starting.

    “It’s a big win,” Tiger Coach Paul Kamikawa said.

    “It’s a district win and we only had four days of practice.

    “We have a good group of seniors, so it wasn’t that bad. They at least have an idea of what was going on.”

    “We shot a good percentage from the 3-point line the last few games. We shoot an even better percentage when we take shots in rhythm” says Oakdale coach Travis Nelson.

  • ‘Cats and Tigers go to the wire

    The Rockwood Middle School boys edged Oliver Springs Thursday night, 51-49, thanks to a last second acrobatic shot Thursday evening at Rockwood Middle Gym.

    “We can’t put ourselves in that kind of situation,” Bobcat Coach Lance Jones said.

    “We’re not a very experienced team and we didn’t handle the press very well. We let them hang around when they shouldn’t have.

    “We’ll get back in the gym tomorrow and we’ll fix it.”

  • Lady Bobcats shutdown Tigers

    Slow and steady wins the race, or in this case the basketball game.

    After a slow start to the game, the Oliver Springs Middle Lady Bobcats beat Rockwood, 34-8, Thursday evening at the Rockwood Middle School Gym.

    In the first three minutes of the game, the iron was most unkind to Oliver Springs and the Lady Tigers. Shots just wouldn’t fall.

    Savannah Ray finally broke the stalemate with a hard-fought two points over the Rockwood defense.
