  • Jackets struggle with Alcoa

    Friday night was a tough night for the Kingston Yellow Jackets and Lady Jackets as Alcoa came to town and took a pair of District 4-AA games from the home team.

    The first game of the night was a nail-biter as Alcoa held off the Lady Jackets, 44-41.

    There would be no drama in the second game as the Tornadoes rolled to a 70-53 victory.

    Once again the Lady Jackets came close to pulling an upset in District 4-AA play, but in the end they came up just short.

  • Tigers sweep Green Waves in 3-A...

    What a difference one night makes. After getting trounced by Kingston the night before, the Rockwood Lady Tigers redeemed themselves with a 69-39 win over the Midway Lady Waves.

    Midway would hit the first three points and the last three points of the opening period, but in between there was a 17-4 run by the Lady Tigers, giving them a 17-10 lead early on.

    Runs of 12-3 and 9-1 in the second period then helped give the Lady Tigers a 38-18 halftime lead.

  • Raiders battle to split

    It was a good news, bad news type of weekend for Randy Nesbit’s Roane State Raiders.

    The good news came Friday night as Roane State knocked off visiting Motlow State, 68-66.

    The bad news came on Saturday, however, as the Raiders dropped their first home game of the season, falling to Volunteer State, 83-67.

    With the split, Roane State falls to 14-7 overall and 8-6 in TJCCAA play.

    The Raiders have two more conference games on tap this week. The Raiders travel to Chattanooga State Wednesday and they will host Cleveland State on Saturday.

  • Raiderettes close in on first...

    The Roane State Raiderettes remain in a dog fight for the top spot in the TJCCAA standings following a weekend sweep of conference foes.

    Friday night, the Raiderettes disposed of Motlow State, 73-46, and they followed that up on Saturday with an 84-70 victory over Volunteer State.

    With the sweep, the Raiderettes are currently 16-5 overall and 12-2 in conference play.

    The Raiderettes have also won six games in a row following the weekend sweep.

  • Jackets celebrate special night...

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets and Lady Jackets celebrated Senior Night in style on Monday as both teams picked up victories over visiting Coalfield.

    The Lady Jackets took the floor first on Monday and gutted out a 59-50 victory over Coalfield.

    The boys game would see Coalfield lead throughout, but Kingston ended the game with a 13-0 run to pick up a 56-46 victory.

    Kingston's Haley Cornellison put on a show Monday night as the talented Kingston sophomore scored a game-high 26 points and pulled down 15 rebounds in leading the Lady Jackets to a 59-50 victory.

    Twenty-four hours after escaping Greenback with a 50-48 victory, the Harriman Blue Devils pulled out another squeaker Tuesday night at Oakdale defeating the Eagles in overtime, 56-47.

    Once again, the Kingston Lady Jackets were oh-so-tantalizingly close to an impressive win, but just fell short in the end to the Christian Academy of Knoxville (CAK) Lady Warriors, 54-51.
