    Another Roane County athlete has signed on to play college ball.

    This time, it would be Kingston baseball’s Brandon Donathan who signed on to continue his baseball career with Martin Methodist College.

    Donathan, a senior at Roane County High School, said he was looking at three or four different schools, but the interest Martin Methodist showed him helped sway him toward the Pulaski school.

    “They let me know that they wanted me,” Donathan said.

  • Rockwood boys, girls tennis...

    The Rockwood boys and girls tennis teams completed a clean sweep on Meigs County on Wednesday night.

    Drake Long started things off with a close 8-6 victory over Matthew Meadows. After the first match scare for the Tigers, Jared Lemons held on for a 9-7 win over Cainan Howard.

    Those two matches proved to be the Tigers best chances to win during both singles and doubles.

    Tanner Green picked up an 8-0 win over Seth Maynor followed by Rockwood’s Josh Spurling defeating Shesaun Patel, 8-1.

  • Midway softball drops two games

    It was a tough two-game district stretch for the Midway Lady Green Waves Monday losing 2-0 to Meigs County and then dropping a 5-1 game to Grace Christian on Tuesday.

    The district losses leave Midway with a 1-2 record in District 3-A and 4-3 overall.

    Monday at Decatur, Midway’s offense was all but shut down. The Lady Waves collected three hits and the closest they came to scoring was in the fifth inning.

  • Tigers baseball defeats Harriman

    “They came ready to hit, and we dug ourselves too big of a hole in the first inning.” Harriman head coach Andy Adcox said.

    The hole being referred to was a five run deficit which proved to be too much for the Blue Devils to overcome as Rockwood picked up the 16-8.

    “We were able to come out and take advantage of some lucky breaks for us early.” Rockwood head coach Jake Witter said.

  • Midway’s Campbell leaves for...

    Midway is once against looking for a head football coach.

    Now former Green Waves head coach Joe Campbell announced he would be leaving Midway to take over the reins of Loudon High School’s football team.

    “I’m excited,” Campbell said, “but it’s a mixture of emotions. The hardest part was to look at my players (and tell them).”

    During his four-year tenure South of the River, Campbell racked up a 22-24 overall record and reached the playoffs in three seasons.

  • Raiderettes fall to Columbia...

    The Roane State Raiderettes couldn’t find their swing as they lost a doubleheader to Columbia State. Roane State was unable to get the bats going at all in the first game as they lost the contest 9-0 and the game ended early, as the run-rule came in to effect after the fifth.

    The first inning showed some offense for Columbia State, as they were able to pull out three quick runs to jump ahead early. The Raiderettes got two runners into scoring position in the bottom of the first but were unable to pull any runs out of it to end the first.

  • Coalfield baseball defeats Midway

    The Midway Green Waves fell to 4-3 on the year after a 4-3 loss to visiting Coalfield last Friday on a very cold and blustery day.

    Coalfield improved to 5-3 with the win. The Yellow Jackets lost to Tellico just the day before, a team that Midway beat at Tellico 20-1 two weeks ago.

    “You just never know how a game will go,” said Coalfield head coach Andy Lowe.

  • Rockwood boys, girls tennis pick...

    Both the Rockwood boys and girls tennis teams were victorious on Wednesday, defeating Union County High School.

    In similar fashion, Rockwood’s Tanner Green was tied with Nathan Capps at 8-8 and went on to claim a 7-4 win.

  • Lady Cats drop first softball...

    Through the first six games of the season, nobody could touch Oliver Springs as the Lady Cats rattled off six-straight wins, outscoring their opponents by a combined 89-1 margin.

    Wednesday, however, brought an end to that streak as Oliver Springs went 1-1 in the Oak Ridge Invitational by dropping its first game to Carter 2-1 and winning the second over Oak Ridge 5-0.

  • Rockwood, Kingston split in...

    The boys and girls tennis teams of Rockwood and Kingston met on Tuesday, with the boys dropping eight sets while the girls won all nine of theirs.

    The only win of the day for the Jackets would come in the fourth match when Josh Spurling defeated Kingston’s Zack Pope 8-2.
