  • Lady Jackets pick up easy wins

    The Kingston Lady Yellow Jackets enjoyed the comforts of home on Monday and Tuesday as Ronnie Ladd’s squad rolled to a pair of easy wins.

  • Bobcats wrap up title with three...

    The Oliver Springs Bobcats wrapped up the regular season District 4-A title Monday evening with a 3-2 victory at Wartburg.
    The title actually came with three district games left to play as the Bobcats improved to 9-0 in district play and no other team in District 4-A had less than four losses after Monday.
    For Bobcat head coach Tony Kegley, winning the title early has a lot of rewards. The biggest advantage is avoiding playing in the tournament’s play-in games on Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5.

    Goins, who hit two long balls 24 hours earlier at Rockwood, opened the scoring in the second inning with a solo home run to left field that gave the Lady Devils a 1-0 lead.
