  • Yellow Jackets air out the ball

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets shook off some cobwebs Saturday morning at Maryville College. The Jackets participated in the 7 on 7 Pass Perimeter Practice Day hosted by the college.

    To borrow a slightly modified phrase from a famous television and book series, “Fall is coming.” One could almost feel the cool Friday evenings while watching Kingston go through the scrmmages.

    The teams the Yellow Jackets faced were McMinn Central, Karns, and Grainger. This only scratches the surface of the schools who were present for the event.

    One of the rarely considered numbers of the game is that it takes a crew of six to officiate a high school football game.

    Ensuring that there are six officials available for each contest has been a challenge recently as the TSSAA has seen the number of registered officials for all sports dwindle over the past few years, prompting a statewide recruiting initiative through radio adverts and asking schools to submit names of potential officials.

  • The err of entitlement: fans...

    When we watch sports, we always want to believe the righteous shall triumph over the corrupt and that good will always conquer evil. We watch in the hopes of watching the teams and athletes whose arrogance is the bane of our existence will get their come-uppance, somewhere, some-how. After all, we like to tell our children that bullies never prosper, right?

    Unfortunately, real sports seldom ever have the feel-good narrative we crave.

  • Dixie Youth baseball year...

    Baseball season finally ended for the Kingston AAA All-Stars and the Rockwood Ozone All-Stars recently.

    Rockwood was eliminated Friday afternoon from the Ozone State Tournament in Sweetwater.

    After Kingston’s opening defeat of Mt. Pleasant, 17-1, the junior Yellow Jackets were beaten 14-4 by host team Loretto.

    Kingston bounced back, beating Pleasant View in a close 10-9 game.

    The Jackets’ season ended with a 6-2 loss to Greenbrier during a rain drenched game Saturday evening. Kingston finished seventh overall in the tournament.

  • Back to the basics and new...

    The 10th Annual Roane State Girls Basketball Camp saw a good turnout of youngsters eager to learn about the sport and improve their mastery this week.

    For Coach Monica Boles, the camps are a mainstay for the summer and a way she can help the kids grow their love and appreciation of basketball.

    “We’ve been doing these camps since I’ve been coaching at Roane state,” she said. “Before that I was helping out with them before I was head coach.

    “I feel like I’ve been doing them since I was in high school.”

  • Fates differ for Roane County...

    The Rockwood All-Stars couldn’t get going, losing to Decatur County, 11-0, in Thursday’s Dixie Youth Ozone State Tournament opener in Sweetwater.

    The trouble started for the youthful Tigers from the beginning. Dylan Allen and Corey Burnette, Rockwood’s one and two hitters, sharply hit the ball, but couldn’t outrun the throws to first.

    The Tigers mustered only one hit in the opening inning when Evan Marks drilled a pitch deep into the outfield.
