    The Oliver Springs Middle School Bobcats special teams became the “Wizards of OZ” as they showed up and showed out jumping to a 14-0 lead without running a single offensive play on the way to a 52-14 victory.
    The outsized Blue Devils took the opening kickoff and were pinned deep within their own territory and unable to get anything going, forcing the first punt of the game.  

  • Jackets spoil Tigers’ 8th grade...

    The Rockwood Middle School Tigers had their eighth-grade night on Thursday as they played host to the Yellow Jackets of Cherokee Middle School.

    Some night players have really great outings and that was the case on Thursday night as Cherokee’s quarterback Kain Collns had himself a night.

    For the third time in three weeks the Harriman Lady Blue Devils traveled to Morgan County and left with big wins with the latest victim being the Wartburg Bulldogs. It was three up three down for Harriman as they overpowered the “Dawgs” by scores of 25-18, 25-23 and 25-20.

    The Oliver Springs Lady Bobcats got a big 8-0 soccer win against the Sweetwater Lady Wildcats Tuesday night at home with district play on the horizon.

    “That’s everything we’ve been preaching about,” Oliver Springs Coach Josh Pryor said, “just how important the district games are.

    “All these previous games are building up to the district.”

    Oliver Springs came out on fire, scoring quickly in the first half when Ivy Reed found the back of the net for a goal and making the score 1-0.

  • The Devils return home for Tiger...

    The Harriman Blue Devils return home tonight to face the Sunbright Tigers in an inter-county district match-up in week five football action.

    The Blue Devils are coming off a 13-7 loss to the Oneida Indians last Friday.

    The contest with Oneida was more of a defensive struggle than offensive as both teams couldn’t muster much in the way of yardage.

  • ‘Cats go on road for district...

    The Oliver Springs Bobcats will be traveling deep into Loudon County this evening to face the Greenback Cherokees for their first road game and district matchup.

    “This will be our first district game against the number four team in the state,” Bobcat Coach Larry Green said.

    Injuries have been a problem for Oliver Springs so far this season, contributing largely to its 0-3 start on the season.

    An open week two weeks ago gave the Bobcats some time to heal and get those injured players back in the line-up.
