    The state's first baseball rankings of the year were released Tuesday, and the news was good for the Rockwood Tigers as Joey Cofer's squad are sitting atop the Class A standings.

    The Tigers celebrated their No. 1 ranking on Wednesday by ripping Greenback in a double header, 14-3 and 13-3.

    Offense was the name of the game for the Tigers as Rockwood pounded out 29 hits in 10 trips to the plate. Eleven of those hits went for extra bases as the Tigers banged out six doubles, one triple and four home runs on the evening.

    The past two seasons have seen the Oliver Springs Lady Bobcats accomplish a lot on the softball diamond. The Lady 'Cats have won two district titles and have advanced to the TSSAA's Class A sectionals.

    However, despite all their success, the Lady 'Cats could not beat Anderson County. In fact, in Matt Headden's 11 years of coaching the Lady 'Cats have never beaten the Lady Mavericks.

    That all changed Wednesday evening, however, as Oliver Springs cruised to an easy 8-1 victory over the Lady Mavericks.

    “It is good to get started out 2-0 in the district and hopefully we can build on that,” offered Coalfield head coach Jason Wilson.

    “We’ve got our destiny in our own hands. We just got to hit the baseball better.”

    Veteran teams can often overcome mistakes and find ways to win.

    Unfortunately for Kingston head coach Bruce Robinette, he doesn’t have a team with a lot of experience this year and his squad is still trying to learn from their mistakes.

    Monday evening, the Jackets made some mistakes in the field and the result was an 11-4 loss at Anderson County.

    Rockwood took the lead for good Monday in the bottom of the first inning.
