  • TWRA seeks survey help

    Scott Somershoe, ornithologist for The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, has announced the agency is looking for bald eagle nests across Tennessee in 2011.

  • Jolley signs with Bryan College

    When college coaches look for catchers, they think defense first and if a potential prospect can hit it’s considered a bonus.

  • Tigers pick up district split

    The Rockwood Tigers picked up a big District 3-A victory Tuesday night as Paul Kamikawa’s squad travelled to Greenback and knocked off the Cherokees, 56-47.

    The news wasn’t as good for the Lady Tigers, however, as Greenback picked up a 44-43 victory.

    Tuesday’s results also leave the District 3-A standings in a bit of a mess.

    The Lady Tigers are currently second in the standings with one game left on their schedule. A victory over Midway Friday would secure the Lady Tigers at least a second place tie for Rockwood in the final district standings.

  • Bobcats pounce Tigers for first...

    Often, a one-win season can be the equivalent of kissing your sister, but for the Oliver Springs Bobcats, that win against the Sunbright Tigers had to be like kissing Megan Fox as they pulled off their first win of the 2010-2011 basketball season with a 51-40 stunner over the Sunbright Tigers.

    The Bobcats started the season with 25 straight losses, but have shown steady improvement over the last month and missed out with close losses against Coalfield, Oakdale and District 4-A champion Jellico in the past three weeks.

  • Blue Devils take broom to...

    For the second time in five days, the Harriman Blue Devils and Lady Devils picked up a District 3-A sweep over Greenback.

    On Monday, it was the Blue Devils picking up a pair of victories at home. Friday night, Harriman took their brooms to Greenback and completed the season sweep of the Cherokees.

    The Lady Devils opened the evening with a 52-34 victory then the Blue Devils completed the sweep with a 74-55 victory in the nightcap game.

    Friday's contest was close for a half, but the second half belonged to the Lady Devils as Harriman rolled to an 18-point victory.

  • 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.

    Girls Game

    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.
