    Hall tossed a one-hitter with one walk and an amazing 18 strikeouts past the Lady Jackets.

    Besides the hit and walk, Coalfield had just two more runners reached safely on errors.

    The Rockwood boys tennis team remained undefeated on the season recently by picking up a 6-3 victory over Carter.

    The victory marks the fourth time this season that the Tigers have been able to win despite forfeiting two matches. Rockwood has just five players and cannot field a team in the singles No. 6 match nor the doubles No. 3 match.

    Rockwood did, however, win six of the seven matches that they competed in. The Tigers went 4-1 in singles and 2-0 in doubles.

    With former Rockwood head coach David Lane now an assistant at Roane State and four Tiger players having already signed scholarships to play for the Raiders this fall, it’s no wonder that the Tigers felt at home Thursday in their 16-7 victory over Midway in a game played at Roane State.
