    As the weather warmed late last week so did the bats of the Midway Green Waves. Midway broke a two-game losing streak with a 15-4 win over cross county rival Oliver Springs Thursday afternoon.

    After the win over Oliver Springs, Midway now stands at 3-2 overall while the Bobcats fall to 5-4 with the loss.

    It was an almost an all lefty pitching day for both teams Thursday. Oliver Springs used three pitchers, but only the last one would have some success against the Midway bats.

    Without sinking his first putt, Kingston's Jonathan Randolph has already made history for the Bryan College golf team.

    Randolph did so recently by signing scholarship papers to become a member of the first-ever golf team for the Lions.

    "I'm really happy," Randolph said. "Knowing that I'm part of their first team ever is exciting. When people look back at their first team I'll be a part of it."

    Harriman's first trip to the TSSAA State Tournament in 15 years ended in disappointment Wednesday afternoon as the Blue Devils dropped a 49-44 decision to Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences (CSAS).

    Two things cost the Blue Devils (21-11) dearly in the loss. First was the final 3:10 of the first half in which the Patriots (28-7) closed the first half on a 14-0 run to take a 30-17 lead into intermission. The second was free throw shooting as Harriman made just eight of 20 freebies on the day.

    There's no I in team, but there is in chemistry and that's one thing Oliver Springs seniors Rue Eskridge, Tyler Harper, Wesley Rather, Lucas Tarver and Justin Taylor have a lot of.

    As Oliver Springs prepares for next week's TSSAA Class A State Tournament in Murfreesboro, Bobcat head coach Tony Ingram will rely on that chemistry and talent as the Bobcats look to bring home a state championship.

    Harriman head coach Jeff King knew his Blue Devils had a lot of potential at the beginning of the 2009-10 season. He also knew his team was young and would struggle at times learning how to compete at a championship level. He knew if his team would survive they would have to persevere.
