  • Make room on the shelf

    Every year the Tennessee Sports Writers Association compiles a list of the top football players in the state for the TSWA All-State Football Teams.

    This year’s teams feature four players from three local schools.
    Midway defensive linemen Hayden Hester, Rockwood defensive linemen Dallas Strader and Garrett Greene and John Langley — both from Harriman — we’re all named members of the Class 1A and Class 2A teams.

  • ‘Scared to shoot’

    Despite keeping it close early, the Rockwood girls fell to Oneida 34-21.

    “I felt like we played hard,” Rockwood head coach Amy Breazeale said. “I feel like we are getting better at what we do, and that’s what this tournament is about.”

    The Lady Tigers held with Oneida in the first quarter, only trailing 11-8, thanks in part to Lexie Hill.

  • Bad call? School could pay

    Criticism of game officials could hit schools in the pocketbooks.

    The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association Legislative Council approved an addition to the bylaws at the Dec. 10 meeting in Hermitage.

    Section 8 says TSSAA schools are responsible for how coaches conduct themselves.

    “Public criticism of game officials by administrators or coaches will result in a fine of $500 assessed to the school,” the section states.

  • Senior bowlers
  • History on the hardwood

    Rockwood High School’s Austin Cooper, left, fends off a block from Harriman’s Javian Witherspoon when the two teams met up last week.

    It was a milestone game; Cooper and his teammates wore jerseys to honor the former Campbell High School, a school for African Americans during the days of segregation.

    The regional school was in Rockwood and was noted for both its athletics and academics.

    The shorts are much longer than what they used to wear, but the former Campbell High School players have no problems with the uniforms the Rockwood High School boys basketball team plan to wear in their honor.

    “I think it’s a great thing for the community considering the history of Campbell High School and the history of Rockwood,” former player Frank Linson said.

    Campbell, which was located in Rockwood, taught black students during segregation, the time when blacks and whites weren’t allowed to attend school together.
