    After a 2-0 start on the season, the Midway Green Waves ran into a talented team in Knox Christian Thursday at Midway.

  • Kingston rallies past Meigs, 5-4

     The weather may have been bitterly cold, but the action on the softball diamond at Southwest Point Thursday evening was red-hot as the Kingston Lady Jackets rallied from a 3-0 deficit to take a big 5-4 win in extra innings over Meigs County.

  • Hughes qualifies for Junior...

     

    When Midway junior Seth Hughes competed in the Tennessee swimming championships on Feb. 14 and 15, he was hoping to do well enough in the 100-meter backstroke to earn a spot in the Southeast Regionals. Hughes thought a time of 55 seconds could get it done, but considering he had never swam the event in under 56 seconds, he knew he had his work cut out.  

  • Tigers fall at Fulton, 9-8

    A seesaw affair ended with the Rockwood Tigers suffering its first defeat of the season Friday evening at Fulton, 9-8.

    It may not have been the strongest outing by the Rockwood Lady Tigers, but they managed to overcome a bit of a sluggish start en route to a 16-4 win over the Wartburg Lady Bulldogs softball squad Friday evening at Wartburg.

    In the top of the first inning, Chelsea Cheek stole home on a wild pitch and Kristin Isham had an RBI double to push the lead to 2-0 early on.

    Wartburg left the bases juiced in the bottom of the first inning when they got to the bottom of the inning.

  • Kingston downs Harriman, 8-0

    Bruce Robinette’s Kingston Yellow Jackets picked up their first win of the 2014 season Friday night as they traveled to Harriman and knocked off the Blue Devils, 8-0.

    The Jackets didn’t pick up the victory by having any big innings or using extra base hits, but rather stringing together singles and being aggressive on the base paths. Of Kingston’s 10 hits on the day, nine were singles. The Jackets also stole nine bases.

    The Harriman Lady Blue Devils traveled to West Knoxville Friday night and split a doubleheader with Knoxville Catholic.

  • Rockwood downs Harriman in tennis
