    The Harriman Lady Devils started their Volleyball team back 4 years ago under the direction of Angela Monkhouse, and year number 4 has been a good one for the Lady Devils.

    Since reviving the program in 2014, the Lady Devils have been unable to pick up a win in the district tournament, but that has changed as this past week the Lady Devils were able to secure a second place finish behind Bledsoe County and a trip to the region tournament.

    If one word could describe the Clinch River Valley middle school softball state sectional tournament championship game between Midway and Harriman then that word would be “WOW”.

    It took extra innings to decide the winner and with the score tied at 9-9 after the regulated time had expired, the international tie-breaker rule goes into effect with a runner (the last out of the previous inning) taking 2nd base.
