  • Harriman girls edge past Lady...

    After nearly four quarters of back-and-forth action, the Lady Devils were able to secure a victory over the Lady Jackets, 48-37.

    “Both teams played extremely hard,” Harriman head coach Johnny Jones said. “It was not a great offensive game. I think both teams have been struggling to score lately. We know each other so well, it’s just hard to play against each other.”

  • Oliver Springs Hall of Fame gets...

    For most coaches and athletes, being bestowed the honor of a hall-of-fame induction is the pinnacle of a career. However, for the three newest members of the Oliver Springs Hall of Fame, that pinnacle was going in with family.

    Tuesday night, immediately following the Lady Cats 55-41 victory over Oneida, Eddie Walls, Ron Hackworth and, his daughter, Jessie Hackworth were all recognized for their contributions to the school.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Lady Cats down Oneida

    Through three and half quarters, Oliver Springs couldn’t quite shake the Lady Indians.

    After leading by only three points in the last period of play, the Lady Cats closed out with a 14-3 run en route to a 62-48 victory over Oneida.

    “Big win.” Oliver Springs head coach Michelle Christopher said. “I thought the kids really stepped up tonight and came ready to play and did what they needed to do to get a big win.”

  • ‘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.”

  • Grace sweeps up Midway boys,...

    The Midway Green Waves dropped both games Tuesday night at Grace Christian as the Rams and Lady Rams once again swept the season series.

    The Lady Waves dropped to 2-5 in District 3A. With the loss, the Green Waves remained winless in the district at 0-7.
