  • 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.

    The Tigers finished the day 8-1, including finishing 6-0 in singles play.

    Drake Long and Zack Walker stalemated at 8-8, before Long would take a 7-5 victory, notching the first victory of the day for Rockwood.

    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.

    Drake Long, Tanner Green and Jared Lemons opened up the first three sets with loses to Kingston’s Chris Merryman, Nash Scalf and Trey Key.

    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.

  • Midway baseball: Week in review

    The Midway Green Waves opened the season with a 4-0 mark, but then ran into one of the better teams in District 3-A and quite possibly the state.

    The Green Waves routed Tellico 20-0 to sweep the season series from the Bears but the next week they faced Meigs County and lost both games to the Tigers 12-2. Midway fell to 4-2 overall and 3-2 in District 3-A.

  • Midway softball downs Harriman

    The Midway Lady Green Waves improved to 4-0 in the young season while dropping Harriman to 1-3 after a 10-0 win.

    To get the season underway after the opening weeks games were rained out, Midway had to schedule in a double-header at Lenoir City last week. Midway rolled to a 13-0 win and followed with a 10-0 win. Back on schedule last Monday, the Lady Waves got a tough extra inning win over Stone Memorial and then the win against Harriman Tuesday.

  • Roane County girls shine in FC...

    Roane County’s Braxton Fritz, Morgan Crass, Aubree Burns and Ava Conway helped the FC Alliance 06 Girls Black U9 team a Shamrock Cup over the weekend after coming out of Chattanooga victorious. The team outscored their opponents 43-7 over the course of its four wins.

  • Oliver Springs baseball falls to...

    The Oliver Springs High School baseball team traveled to Coalfield High School Monday night. The trip would result in a 2-7 loss for the Bobcats. This brings them to 4-1 on the year in district play. They were previously unbeaten.

    Keith Roberts got the start for the Bobcats. He finished the night with seven strikeouts, five hits and giving up four runs.

    “He pitched well, and battled every batter he faced,” Oliver Springs head coach Tony Kelgley.

  • College athletes: Should they be...

    A topic that has been brought up fairly often as of late is the issue whether college athletes should get paid for participating in sports at their college.

    There are several different things that are normally said when the topic is brought up, such as, they are already getting paid, in a way, or a simple yes, they should get paid.

    I honestly can look at it from both perspectives, as I have been a part of both sides of the fence.

    I have played college football, as well as currently being a college student who is no longer playing.

  • Lady Tigers softball defeated by...

    The bats didn’t exactly get rolling for neither Oak Ridge nor the Rockwood Lady Tigers on Monday afternoon.

    With neither team able to light up the scoreboard, Oak Ridge drove in one run for the 1-0 victory.

    The two traded blows throughout the first five innings with out a score.

    Rockwood, who pitched senior Baylee Young in its last game against Oliver Springs, went with the youngest of its three-way pitching rotation by starting freshman Sydnee Treadway.
