  • Raiders built for speed

    Roane State Community College baseball coach David Lane loves team speed, and he feels his 2012 Raiders have plenty of it.
    “We’ve been recruiting for speed,” Lane said. “We’re in the Division I level on speed. We should be able to put some runs on the board this year. I also expect us to be much more solid defensively.”
    Demond Tubbs will lead off for Roane State. Clayton Shell and Jeremy Latham give the Raiders two solid left-handed hitters, while Connor Wise provides power. Lane expects freshman shortstop Eric Brown to fill the critical third spot in the batting order.

  • Basler to catch for Roane State

    College baseball coaches always think defense first when looking for catchers.
    But when they find a catcher with defensive skills that can also hit, well they feel they've hit the jackpot and that was the case for Roane State head coach David Lane recently as he signed Kingston senior Derek Basler.
    “Derek's got all the tools to be successful,” Lane said. “He's good behind the plate and he's a big stick from the left side. We're always looking for better talent and we think Derek is going to make us a better team.”
    Basler was equally excited to playing for Coach Lane.

  • Maturity, leadership to guide...

    Roane State Community College softball coach Sue Niemi needs her team to stay healthy and to focus on details.
    If that happens, then the Lady Raiders can be competitive against any opponent, she said.
    “We have a good mixture of freshmen and sophomores,” Niemi said. “This is a good group, and there is good chemistry.”
    A knee injury has sidelined veteran pitcher Morgan Page, leaving Roane State with one primary pitcher, freshman Bridgit Cook. Page could return later in the season.
