    “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.

    Joey Cofer’s Rockwood Tigers put together a solid performance Thursday evening in picking up an 11-1 victory over Oliver Springs in five innings.

    Offensively, the Tigers pounded out 13 hits and scored in four of their five at bats.

    Tiger ace Zach Breazeale was the beneficiary of all the offense as the left-handed pitcher tossed a three-hitter with two walks and seven strikeouts past the Bobcats.

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

    COALFIELD - Coalfield’s 10-year anniversary of their state championship in baseball could be special. The Jackets (1-2) took a big step in proving they should be considered one of the top Class A teams in East Tennessee after a convincing 15-5 six-inning win over Rockwood last Tuesday.

    If the Rockwood Tigers are fortunate enough to make a trip to the TSSAA Class A State Tournament this year, there is a good chance they could see Lookout Valley, Forrest or Mount Pleasant in Murfreesboro.

    >Midway and Harriman hooked up Thursday afternoon for the second and final game in the season series for 2008.

    Harriman won the first game Tuesday 12-2 at Midway on the strength of four home runs. With all the homers on Tuesday no one really expected a pitchers duel Thursday, but it did happen as Harriman pulled out a 5-0 win with all five runs coming in the fifth and sixth innings.

    Harriman improved to 4-1 with the win and 2-0 in District 3-A while Midway dropped to 1-3 overall and 0-2 in the district.

    The Harriman Lady Blue Devils are off to a great start as David Currier’s squad ran their season mark to 6-0 recently with a 7-1 victory over Westmoreland.

    The game was limited to five innings because Harriman was hosting both Coalfield and Westmoreland, but the amount of time didn’t seem to matter as the Lady Devils were in control from the outset.

    Lady Devil pitcher Kayla Turner had another strong outing as she tossed a one-hitter with two walks to go along with four strikeouts.
