  • ‘Next man up’ helps Bobcats find...

    Oliver Springs head coach Tony Ingram said it took a little while for things to open up for his team Tuesday night against Oneida.

    Once they did, despite the absence of starter Aaron Noe — who served the last of a two-game suspension — the Bobcats defeated the Indians 55-41.

    “They played us in zone a lot, kind of forcing our hand to some outside shots,” Ingram said. “It took us a little while, but we were finally able to knock a couple down, especially late. It was a tight ball game and we opened it up with some shots.”

  • Roane State holds on to defeat...

    After opening up with a 17-6 run, Roane State was able to hold off a late rally from Cleveland State to secure an 80-73 victory on their home court Wednesday night.

  • Raiderettes edge past Vikings

    Not every game is a 101-100 shootout — sometimes it’s the defense that steps up and helps a team win.

    That was the case for the Raiderettes Wednesday night as they grinded out a 58-51 victory over Cleveland State.

    “Definitely just glad to get a conference win,” Roane State head coach Monica Boles said.

  • Lady Wave stay unbeaten, Tigers...

    The Lady Wave grabbed a 47-26 victory while the Tigers took home a 46-15 win.

    Midway was undefeated coming into the game, and were able to leave the gym that way.

    8th grader Karlee Bowling, tossed up 24 of her Lady Tiger’s 26 on the night.

    It wasn’t a high-scoring affair, but that didn’t matter for Oliver Springs Middle School Monday night.

    After getting out to an early 6-0 lead, the Lady Cats defeated Harriman Middle 21-6.

    “We struggled to score, it was a defensive battle,” Oliver Springs head coach Tonya Snyder said. “We like to push tempo and we did a good job of that.

    “That’s been our story this year, we’ve struggled to score, but I like their hustle and their heart and their effort.”

  • Bobcats escape triple-overtime...

    It took nearly six full quarters to determine a winner between Harriman and Oliver Springs Middle, but at the end of the third overtime the Bobcats took home a 41-37 win.

    “It might have been a heck of a game for fans, but it wasn’t a heck of a game for us,” Oliver Springs head coach Lance Jones said. “We played hard and that’s all I can ask from them. We didn’t play smart, but in the end we got the win. I’m proud of them.”

  • Bertram hits milestone, Midway...

    The Harriman Blue Devils and the Midway Green Waves met for the second time this season last Friday night at Midway.

  • Lady Green Wave winless two...

    With the chorus of Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us Back” blasting through the gym speakers at Midway Middle School, 19 girls ran onto the court for basketball practice on Wednesday afternoon.

    Some dribbling a basketball like there’s nothing to it, and some like it was their first time, but all 19 of them have one thing in common, victory.

    So far this season, the Midway Middle School Lady Green Wave have yet to lose a game, currently sitting at 12-0.
