  • Harriman, Midway had outstanding...

    Before I get into March Madness, I would like to congratulate Coach Johnny Jones and the Harriman Lady Devils on their state tournament run. They were beaten by Middleton, who took a 66-game winning streak into the tournament, but was defeated by Gibson County in the semi-finals on Friday. South Greene defeated Gibson County for the championship Saturday afternoon.

    Kudos also goes to Jon Leffew's Midway Lady Waves for having an outstanding season, losing to the new Class A champion South Greene in the substrate.

  • Big Season for Big Blue

    The Harriman Lady Devils’ first trip to the Class A State Tournament since the 2002-’03 season was short-lived, as they fell to defending champions Middleton 62-47 Thursday morning at Monte Hale Arena on the Middle Tennessee State University campus.

    “We played a very good, very athletic team,” Harriman head coach Johnny Jones said.

    “Their size and quickness were, without a doubt, the difference. And their bench is deep. When they substitute, they’ve got size too,” he added.
